October brings apple picking, a welcome chill in the evening air, leaves changing color and … the beginning of Non-GMO Month! While educating people about GMOs is central to our mission year round, Non-GMO Month is a unique opportunity to bring together retailers, manufacturers, farmers and shoppers in order to spread awareness about the GMO issue. By uniting our voices, we are all working to build a non-GMO food supply and provide an informed choice about the food we buy.

To kick off this year’s celebrations, we’ve asked brands to share why they decided to make a non-GMO commitment and get their products verified. The brands below have taken an even deeper pledge by becoming Non-GMO Month sponsors to help us extend our educational reach.

There are many opportunities to avoid GMOs in our day-to-day lives. Nature’s Path foods are a part of that solution and we are proud to join voices with others through Non-GMO Month to paint a holistic picture, educate, and show how it is possible to live a non-GMO life.
