October Is Non-GMO Month

October is Non-GMO Month and organizers kicked it off with the Righ2Know March starting at the Flatbush Food Co-op.  Marchers from all over the world gathered on the morning of October 1, 2011 to march from New York City to Washington, D.C.

The Non-GMO Project has been working with partners such as Organic Valley and Nature’s Path to independently verify that there are no genetically modified ingredients in their products.  These organizations are also advocating that the U.S.D.A. require manufacturers of GMO products to label the products as such.
