Sourcing & Procurement of Non-GMO, Natural & Organic Food Products From USA
A genetically modified organism (GMO) represents a plant, animal, or microorganism that has undergone some modification that does not develop naturally. As a leader in exporting non-GMO foods, the United States started the non-GMO trend in global markets by introducing farmers to importers that wanted non-GMO corn. The anti-GMO movement has gained momentum ever since, with the United States government enforcing strict regulations that prevent GMO foods from achieving organic status. Additional regulations require food producers to include a list of ingredients on every product label. As a result, sourcing and procurement of non-GMO natural and organic food products from the USA have never been easier.
With the USA leading the way for the non-GMO movement, how do distributors worldwide discover brands from the US that offer organic food and beverage products that do not contain any genetically modified organisms? The traditional model of going through brokers and attending international trade shows is cost prohibitive and takes a considerable amount of time. In 2010, a company headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, devised a much better way for the distributors of better-for-you food and beverage products to connect with companies from the US that offer non-GMO organic foods.
