Here at the Non-GMO Project, we are putting the finishing touches on our strategic planning for 2016. This not only gives us an opportunity to celebrate our achievements, but allows us to look forward into the future…and what a bright future it is!
It’s hard to believe that before 2010, Non-GMO Project Verified products hadn’t yet hit the shelves. Just five years later, your collective decisions on what to place in your grocery carts have not only made the Non-GMO Project Butterfly soar to great heights, they have made an incredible impact on our food supply. There are now more than 34,000 Verified products in stores across North America. This accomplishment is celebrated throughout the food industry as a significant step towards increased transparency in our food system. From the retailers who launched the Project and stocked their shelves with Verified products to the brands who believed in our mission of building a non-GMO future and made a strong non-GMO commitment, this is truly a shared success. Of course, all of this would not have been possible without YOU…every time you choose non-GMO products you continue to drive meaningful change.
We are excited to announce a new monthly series, “Changemakers Change Acres,” which will provide a deeper look at all that we are accomplishing together. We invite you to nominate a Changemaker – someone (be it a brand, a retailer or a community member) who is pushing the non-GMO movement forward in a notable way. We will honor these leaders at the end of 2016. You can submit your nomination anytime through September! If you have any questions, please contact us!
So stay tuned, true change is happening…in the meantime, we hope you will share this infographic and join us in celebrating all that we have accomplished in 2015 and all that is on the horizon for 2016!
Here’s to a healthy and happy non-GMO year ahead!
