Learn the Facts About Non-GMO's

GMOs are "genetically modified organisms". Organisms that have been genetically altered through gene splicing. More and more evidence is leading to the conclusion that GMO's are creating health problems in humans and livestock while contributing to environmental damage. We have put together a list of several organizations working in the field of Non-GMO's for your reference. There you will find lots of information so that you can stay informed about the Non-GMO movement.

Watch The Future of Food

One of the best ways to learn about GMO's is by watching documentary films about the industry. One that we highly recommend is The Future of Food. The film was originally released in 2004 and it still shown around the world. It has been instrumental in the Non-GMO movement. In addition to The Future of Food, we encourage you to check out the list we have created on our Resource Page and share them with your friends and family.

Look for the Non-GMO Project Verified Seal

Rumiano Cheese Company is proud that our entire organic cheese line, organic butter, and organic WPC-80% (Whey Protein Concentrate) are the first in the world to achieve Non-GMO Project Verification.  The Non-GMO Project, a non-profit organization created by U.S and Canadian natural and organic products companies, offers consumers a non-GMO choice for organic and natural products that are produced without genetic engineering or recombinant DNA technologies. Every day companies just like Rumiano are also receiving the Non-GMO Project Verification. We encourage you to keep an eye out for the Non-GMO Project Verified seal when shopping.

Shop at Stores That Sell Non-GMO Products

There is a growing movement amongst retail outlets to carry more and more Non-GMO verified products. As a consumer, you can feel better knowing they have done the legwork for you in choosing products that are safe for you and your family. The Non-GMO Project website had a continuous list of participating retailers. Many of them also participate in Non-GMO Month each October with in-store deals and tastings.

Encourage Your Local Store to Carry Non-GMO Verified Products

Can't find Non-GMO Verified products in your local store? Let them know that you would buy them if they carried them. The Non-GMO Project was started in Berkeley, CA in 2003 at a natural food store who responded to letters from customers who were concerned about a GM soy lecithin that the store was carrying. Since then, the movement has grown immensely and will continue to grow with the support of customers like you!

 HR 1599 version 2

 The Dark Act

In 2014, Vermont became the first state to require mandatory GMO labeling. Connecticut and Maine have also passed GMO labeling laws that will go into effect once neighboring states pass similar laws and other states are currently looking to pass GMO labeling legislation.  In response to these state efforts, federal legislation developed by food companies has been introduced that the consumer rights community have dubbed the “Deny Americans the Right-to-Know” Act (DARK Act). This anti-GMO labeling bill has just passed the House of Representatives and will be introduced in the Senate soon.
