The “Non-GMO Project” label only verifies that a product doesn’t contain genetically modified (GMO) ingredients.

So excited to speak to this incredible organization the Non GMO Project. It was started in 2007 by Megan Westgate who is the Executive Director. This organization verifies products that "do not" contain GMO ingredients. Tiffany Paige of Green With Tiffany speaks to Caroline Kinsman, the Brand Outreach Manager at ShiftCon in Manhattan Beach, California.
