At Native Sun, Non-GMO Month lasts all year.
The term GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms” refers to plants or animals created through genetic engineering that fundamentally changes the organism in question.
At Native Sun we are against GMOs because of the lack of thorough GMO testing on humans, our belief in the right of the consumer to choose whether or not they wish to consume GMO foods, and our support of local and family farms that are often destroyed by the big business of GMO crops.
We believe that we have the strictest non-GMO policy in the United States in spite of our dependence on the honesty of manufacturers, a flawed regulatory system, and a glaring lack of defined industry standards. In support of your right to choose non-GMO products, we contact each and every manufacturer and obtain confirmation that ingredients are not sourced from GMOs. We update several times a year to make sure nothing has changed in regards to the raw materials used and the manufacturing process itself. We support truth in labeling and believe that the food industry should be held to a higher standard — ours.
