Non-GMO Project Verification


Jungbunzlauer obtains Non-GMO Project Verification for the majority of its product range

Gene technology and genetically modified crops are important topics in the food industry since many years. The subject had and continues to have a big impact in the agricultural sector and hence, in the whole food and beverage supply chain. The technology and its benefits are widely accepted in the industry and consumers, however, there is a growing share of people, that wants to be able make an educated choice between consuming products of conventional origin and product that got in touch with gene technology. More and more people seek reliability about the origin of their daily food and the technologies used to make it.

Throughout the world there are big differences in the labelling requirements for GMO food. While in Europe the labelling laws are very strict, the regulations in the United States of America do not require mentioning genetical modification on food labels. For consumers it is thus not easy to find information about the GMO status of their favourite products.

As a reaction to consumers needs voluntary Non-GMO labelling options evolved. Independent organisations designed Non-GMO labelings that food and beverage makers can use on their products after an in-depth scrutiny of the entire product history regarding use of GMO technologies. Only products free from usage of gene technology are eligible to carry such third party certification label. Part of that scrutiny are also the food additives and ingredients used and therefore, also suppliers of raw material have to respond to that requirement of the consumer and take a stand regarding genetical modification in foods and beverages.
