Customer demand for Non-GMO products. Verified products increase by nine percent each year. The largest national grocery chains to the smallest shops and natural markets carry Non-GMO Project Verified products. With the implementation of the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard, American retailers are seeking third party assurance that non-GMO products are truly non-GMO and clear, recognizable labeling for their consumers.
In order to obtain the Non-GMO label, a product has to be certified as containing ingredients with less than 1% genetic modification. That certification must come from one of the four independent technical administrators that the Non-GMO Project has authorized to certify products.
The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization committed to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products, educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO choices. The Non-GMO Project’s Standard aims to verify that systems are in place for: 1. Testing: Meaningful, ongoing testing of high GMO risk inputs. The Non-GMO Project Verified seal gives shoppers the assurance that a product has completed a comprehensive third-party verification for compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard. When it comes to food labeling, third-party certifications are best because they ensure the claim is unbiased, rigorous, and transparent.
The Non-GMO Project was established in 2007 and formalized in 2010 in order to provide a reputable, reliable, and third-party-verified labeling system for consumers; it has become one of the fastest-growing certifications in the food and beverage commercial market. ECS products always maintain their status through continued testing and auditing.
In addition, some more general concerns include environmental pollution, unintentional gene transfer to wild plants, possible creation of invasive weeds, risk to crop genetic diversity, religious, cultural and ethical concerns, and fright of unknown effects. With all the challenges ECS Brands always maintained their standards.
We’re proud that all of our products, ECS Brands, meet the standards imposed by The Non-GMO Verification Project. There’s an essential reciprocity at work in our dealings with the earth: Take care of your home and it will take care of you. Or, to put it another way, whether it is better to give or receive is of less consequence than the fact we are rarely confined to one or the other. Certainly in our products, the “give” and the “take” are forever intermingled. The best outcomes come from embracing this dynamic, and leveling up.
