Every product we make is not only simple in ingredients, but also made without genetically modified ingredients,” Liu says. “Having the Non-GMO Project Verified seal assures everyone of our voluntary commitment to non-GMO products. Parents want to know that food is GMO-free, and we are thrilled to give them that assurance and peace of mind.” Liu added that Non-GMO verification is a long, comprehensive process, but getting this verification is something that makes Crispy Green extremely proud. The Non-GMO Project has gained significant consumer recognition since it began verifying products in 2010. In fact, at the end of 2012, sales of Non-GMO Project Verified products had reached $3 billion, which is more than a 108 percent increase from 2011. With 37 states looking at mandatory labeling, and numerous consumer-driven initiatives in the works, it's clear that the demand for non-GMO products is going to continue to skyrocket in 2014.
