Sourcing Non-GMO Ingredients

The Hatchery

January 31 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Join us for a workshop to learn about non-GMO sourcing considerations, labeling and certification options, and consumer insights on non-GMO. In particular, the workshop will cover why non-GMO is becoming a popular product attribute and the challenges with sourcing non-GMO ingredients. What labels and certifications are preferred and what do they mean?  Attendees will also gain insights on: consumer views on genetic modification, organic vs. non-GMO, labeling options and the regulatory environment, sourcing non-GMO ingredients and the challenges and risks, global vs. US perceptions, and regulations.
