The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization committed to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products, educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO choices. As the only third party verification organization, Non-GMO Project vigorously tests each ingredient in a product and requires that every batch of major risk food, such as corn, rice, soy, and wheat is tested before use and is below the threshold of 0.9%.

“We are very excited that we can officially announce to our consumers that we are Non-GMO Project verified,” said Setton Farms COO Mia Cohen. “Being Non-GMO is extremely important to us, and we are thrilled to offer our customers the assurance that our products are safe, ethical, and delicious.”

Over 80% of all GMO’s grown worldwide are bred for herbicide tolerance. As a result, the use of toxic herbicides has increased drastically since GMOs were introduced. GMO crops are also responsible for the emergence of ‘super weeds’ and ‘super bugs,’ which are killed with even more toxic poisons.
