Natural Food Stores Band Together in Anti-GMO Campaign

The Non-GMO Project, a collaboration of North American grocery stores and co-ops urging natural food and supplement companies to go Non-GMO, is now at 50 members nationwide, and counting.  From San Diego, California to White River Junction, Vermont, natural food retailers have begun to join this effort to assure "a Non-GMO food supply, our customer's confidence in the foods and supplements we offer, and the general health & well-being of ourselves, our customers and the world in general."

The Certificate of Membership that each store receives upon joining the Project also describes the project as:

"A Groundbreaking Effort To Identify GMOs In The Food Supply and To Influence Natural Food & Supplement Companies To Go Non-GMO.

The First Comprehensive Non-GMO Compliance Review System started By Independent Natural Foods & Supplements Retailers and their Customers.

The most rigorous standard for Non-GMO verification, developed with the technical assistance of Global ID Consulting."

The Non-GMO Project was founded by two natural grocery stores, The Natural Grocery Company in Berkeley, California, and The Big Carrot Natural Food Market in Toronto, Canada. To create a systematic and scientific program for Non-GMO certification, they have retained Global ID Consulting / Genetic ID North America, the world's leader in GMO control and identification.  The Project's mission is two-fold; first, it seeks to enlist as many member grocery stores as possible across the United States and Canada.  Second, The Non-GMO Project will contact all natural foods & supplements manufacturers, and formally request their participation.
