Happy Non-GMO Month! We hope you’ll join us in celebrating your right to choose non-GMO products for yourselves and your families. Our non-profit organization has accomplished incredible feats since starting ten years ago; the Non-GMO Project Verified seal is now carried on 40,000+ products across the U.S. and Canada, more than 2,300 retailers have registered with us to show their non-GMO support, and global sales of Non-GMO Project Verified products has topped $19 billion. None of this could be possible without you.

It is through the hard work of farmers, retailers, manufacturers and you savvy shoppers that we are continually able to reach new heights. In celebration of our 7th annual Non-GMO Month, and to show their commitment and dedication to the non-GMO movement, we asked several dedicated brands to shed light on what drives them to work towards a non-GMO future.

Why does Chosen Foods choose the Butterfly?
Consumers should have the right to know what is in their food and how it’s made. We believe whether or not someone consumes GMOs should be a well-informed choice. Dinner should not be a science experiment. We prefer to enjoy food in its most natural state because real food has the power to nourish and sustain us if we let it.

We believe in supporting organizations and other brands who are fighting to ensure consumers are informed about genetically modified foods. It truly takes a village and the more brands that get on board with this movement, the better. Together, we can create a shift toward a healthier future.

Why does PopCorner’s choose the Butterfly?
Our Little Rebellion is on a mission to lead the charge towards Non-GMO Project Verified, transparently sourced and U.S.-grown corn, which is why we created a new supply of non-GMO corn using 59 family farmers throughout Nebraska. Choosing the butterfly solidifies our integrity and promise to use only non-GMO ingredients.

Corn is the highest risk crop to contain GMOs and only approximately 8% of corn acreage in the U.S. is non-GMO. Because using Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients is important to us, Non-GMO Month is the perfect time to elevate consumer awareness and spark a revolution for more non-GMO corn.
