What is Non-GMO Verified?

The verification is granted by the Non-GMO Project, a not-for-profit organization committed to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products, educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO choices.

Non-GMO Verified status indicates that the brands adhere to consensus-based best practices for avoidance of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which are organisms whose natural genetic material has been altered through engineering techniques. Natural Merchants winery partners will proudly display the Non-GMO Verified badge on shelf tags and packaging so that consumers can easily identify the products.

As you seek healthier food options, the concept of genetic modification of ingredients has come into the spotlight. While purchasing certified organic products is a substantial step in working toward a GMO-free diet, organic manufacturers and importers are going the extra step to obtain the Non-GMO Project Seal to give you additional peace of mind.
