Certified Non-GMO by AGW

Meaningful and Accessible

Certified Non-GMO by AGW

Certified Non-GMO by AGW is the only food label in North America that helps consumers avoid genetically modified food ingredients and for meat, dairy and eggs, support high-welfare, environmentally sustainable food animal production.

Available to farmers, ranchers and food producers, the Certified Non-GMO by AGW label guarantees food products are produced without genetically engineered/modified feed, supplements or ingredients, and that meat, dairy and eggs come from animals raised according to the highest animal welfare standards in the industry, Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW.

As public concern for the labeling of GMOs (genetically modified organisms, also known as GE, or genetically engineered) continues to grow, the market for non-GMO products is surging 17% annually and expected to reach 1.1 billion USD by 2023, according to industry analyst, Technavio. Consumers seek out non-GMO products for a variety of reasons, including environmental sustainability, health, corporate consolidation and transparency. A lack of clear labeling around GMOs means that consumers must actively seek out Certified Non-GMO products to avoid them. With independent annual audits to ensure compliance, Certified Non-GMO by AGW provides farmers, ranchers and food producers with a robust, trusted and highly competitive non-GMO label claim.

 

“With the ever-growing consumer demand for non-GMO products, pursuing the Certified Non-GMO by AGW status for our pork products was the next logical step, and will help keep us at the forefront of the market.  The certification process is rigorous, but achievable and affordable, and it shows our customers that we’re going above and beyond to offer a quality product that is what it says it is: truly sustainable.”

— Jeremiah Jones of the North Carolina Natural Hog Growers Association and GrassRoots Pork Co., Beulaville, NC
