More than 70 percent of food sold in the U.S. contains some genetically engineered ingredients and cross-contamination affects even natural crops with genetically engineered pollen. Consumers might want to shop for foods that don't contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs) but without clear labeling, it can be hard for shoppers to trace what is in their food.
Thrive Market believes foods containing any genetically engineered ingredients should be clearly labeled. While the U.S. does not yet legally mandate the labeling of GMOs, we are committed to transparency about the products we sell on Thrive Market. Many of the foods we carry are certified by the non-GMO project and/or certified Organic by the USDA, which prohibits the use of GMOs.
Thrive Market is passionately committed to creating a world that is free of GMOs. We believe everyone has a right to know what they are eating and what chemicals are in the foods they consume every day. To make thing easier for our customers, we carefully screen our products to ensure we do not carry any GMO foods.
Commit to starting your New Year right and pledge to eliminate GMOs from your diet. And when you join Thrive Market's list, we will share delicious ways to make good on your pledge.
