Important Note about Non-GMO Claims
While the companies listed in The Non-GMO Sourcebook may claim that their products are non-GMO, the publisher cannot guarantee or verify such claims.
Non-GMO claims are verified by the supplier, the customer, and, preferably, a third-party certifier. To protect themselves and their customers, suppliers that make non-GMO claims should implement rigorous systems of identity preservation/traceability combined with GMO testing and third-party verification to validate the accuracy of such claims.
Likewise, companies that buy products claiming to be “non-GMO” should ask suppliers for documented proof of such claims to protect their interests.
The Non-GMO Project is meeting the need for an industry standard for non-GMO claims. It offers a program to verify the non-GMO status of food and other products.
