An optional, additional accreditation to Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW, Certified Non-GMO by AGW provides farmers, ranchers and food producers with a robust, trusted and highly competitive non-GMO label claim.
There is a required application fee of $100 upon submitting an application to the Certified Non-GMO by AGW program. Discounts are available when applying for two or more certifications simultaneously (e.g., Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW or Certified Grassfed by AGW). Once an application has been reviewed, an additional fee to cover the audit will be charged. Applicants will also be required to cover lab testing expenses for sample(s) collected at the time of the onsite audit. All fees are nonrefundable. Please see the AGW Fee Schedule for more details.
Farmers in the program agree to a minimum of one visit a year from AGW staff or agents, with the possibility of additional visits if deemed necessary, to confirm compliance with the standards during various seasons and to allow observation of animals in different phases of life. Participation in the program is on an annual basis and must be renewed each year. Before applying, you should review the Certified Non-GMO by AGW standards to make sure you believe they are consistent with your farming practices and values. For livestock and poultry producers: Please do not apply unless you have already applied (or are currently certified) for Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World, and currently have animals on your farm.
