The Certified Non-GMO by AGW label is the only non-GMO label to offer additional assurances about animal welfare and environmental sustainability.
Available to farmers, ranchers and food producers across North America, the Certified Non-GMO by AGW label guarantees food products are not only produced without genetically modified (GMO) feed, supplements or ingredients, but also come from animals raised according the highest animal welfare standards in the industry, Animal Welfare Approved (AWA).
The market for non-GMO products is surging in response to consumer concerns, with high-profile companies like Campbell Soup, General Mills, Del Monte and PepsiCo recently announcing non-GMO labeling initiatives. According to Packaged Facts–a leading publisher of market research in the food and beverage sector–forecasts a near doubling of the global market for non-GMO foods and beverages by 2019.
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-GE label claim.
There is a required application fee of $81 upon submitting an application to the Certified Non-GMO by AGW program. Once an application has been reviewed, an additional fee to cover review and certification services 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.
