Staying at the forefront of the food industry, MGP delivers ingredients that allow our customers to meet the latest consumer trends. This has driven us to provide specialty wheat products without the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
To support this commitment, MGP has worked closely with the Non-GMO Project to obtain Non-GMO Project Verification on our food grade ingredients. All of our wheat startches and several of our wheat proteins are now designated as Non-GMO Project Verified, plus additional proteins have been submitted to achieve Verified status. This important milestone symbolizes MGP's dedication to serving the “better for you” market segment and to meeting rigorous testing and production requirements.
The Non-GMO Project, a non-profit organization, offers North America's only third party verification and labeling for non-GMO food and products. They currently verify products from more than 2,500 brands, representing $16 Billion in annual sales. The goal is to preserve and build the non-GMO food supply and educate consumers on their non-GMO choices. The Non-GMO Project publishes all products that have earned the Non-GMO Project seal on their website – nongmoproject.org
Our Non-GMO Project Verified specialty wheat ingredients are produced in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard. Achieving this verification assures our customers who require non-GMO ingredients that MGP follows stringent best practices for GMO avoidance.
