UNPA to Present Non-GMO Seminar

May 7, 2013

Program titled “The Non-GMO Future: How to Source, Test, Label and Market Food and Supplement Ingredients” will take place Thursday, May 23.

Consumer demand for non-GMO foods and dietary supplements is at an all-time high, according to the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA), Salt Lake City, UT. 

Understanding how to source, test, label and market non-GMO food and dietary supplements is critical to a competitive advantage in the U.S. and a legal mandate in most countries. With this in mind, UNPA is hosting a seminar program on Thursday, May 23 titled “The Non-GMO Future: How to Source, Test, Label and Market Food and Supplement Ingredients.”

GMO labeling laws are pending in many states. Whole Foods has launched a GMO transparency initiative to be fully operational by 2018. Additionally, U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-OR) introduced the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act, legislation that would require FDA to label genetically engineered foods so that consumers can make informed choices about what they eat.
