NSF’s experts guide manufacturers and retailers through the Non-GMO Project verification process to earn North America’s most prevalent, third-party verified non-GMO seal. As a leading technical administrator for the Non-GMO Project, we support clients with a thorough understanding of complex, evolving genetically modified organism (GMO) issues and dedicated account managers who care about your business.
The Non-GMO Project Verified butterfly seal is recognized by more than half of North American consumers, and some are willing to pay a premium for verified products.1
Since 2008, the Non-GMO Project has verified more than 60,000 products from over 3,000 brands. Verification to the Non-GMO Project Standard represents best practices for GMO avoidance and may include testing of high-risk ingredients in product formulations.
