Non-GMO market growth, French AWA stickers & farm-to-farm sales

February Focus On Farming from A Greener World
February 2018
Looking for a market-leading non-GMO certification?
According to The Hartman Group, 46% of consumers avoid GMOs. The market for non-GMO products is surging, but consumers are quickly beginning to understand that a non-GMO claim on its own is not a guarantee of environmental sustainability, high animal welfare, farmer sovereignty, responsible antibiotic use or biodiversity—only A Greener World’s labels offer those assurances, in addition to ensuring production free of GMO inputs.

Read more about our Certified Non-GMO by AGW standards and certification opportunities here–and just in case you missed it, be sure to check out our recent blog on non-GMO labels here.
