I’ve been working with the Project for two years now, and it has been truly inspiring to witness the impact we are having on our food supply. From brands to retailers to YOU, together we are making great strides towards building a non-GMO future.
In celebration of Independence Day and Vermont’s labeling law taking effect, I started thinking about freedom of choice and thought it would be fun to create a Living Non-GMO “Bill of Rights.” My apologies in advance to all you constitutional scholars out there!
We the Project, in order to form a more perfect food system, establish transparency in ingredients, ensure non-GMO choices, provide more non-GMO food and products for more consumers, promote environmental welfare, and secure a non-GMO future for ourselves and our posterity, do establish the Non-GMO Project Verified seal for the People of North America.
