DERRY, NH (February 5, 2014) – MegaFood has received the Non-GMO Project Verified seal from the Non-GMO Project for thirty-seven products in its line of whole food supplements, bringing the total of their Non-GMO Project Verified products to forty-two. The Non-GMO Project is a third party certification program that assures a product has been produced according to consensus-based best practices for GMO (genetically modified organism) avoidance.
MegaFood’s products have been Non-GMO for more than five years according to European Standards. With the pure food movement in the United States on the rise, The Non-GMO Project has become the leader in third party verification. It was important for MegaFood to obtain this additional Non-GMO verification seal. This process isn’t easy for the New Hampshire based company, as much of the verification requires source documentation from small local suppliers, which they intentionally use. The company is a leader in informing and educating the entire supply chain on the importance of Non-GMO Verification and documentation.
Last June, five MegaFood supplements – Blood Builder, Wild Blueberry, Magnesium, Calcium, and Calcium Magnesium and Potassium – received the Non-GMO Project Verified seal. Additionally, the Non-GMO Project has recognized the FoodState manufacturing facility, where the MegaFood products are made, as compliant with the necessary segregation and traceability measures required for Non-GMO Project Verification.
“The Non-GMO Project has particularly high standards for whole food supplements, so receiving the seal for so many of our core products is a great accomplishment for MegaFood,” said Robert U. Craven, CEO of FoodState, makers of MegaFood. “We strive to produce authentic nourishment and to be a transparent company. This seal validates that we are striving to do it right every single day.”
All of MegaFood’s supplements are made exclusively with FoodState nutrients, designed to deliver whole food nourishment that the body can easily digest.
