Non-GMO Month was created by the Non-GMO Project in 2010 as a platform for raising awareness on the GMO issue. Citizens and organizations across North America are waking up to the potential risks of GMOs and the desire to have food products free of GMO technology.
As the leading manufacturer of organic infant and toddler foods with nearly 100 products verified as NON-GMO, Earth’s Best is proud supporter of the NON-GMO Project and a Platinum Sponsor of NON-GMO Month in October.

All certified organic products are produced without the use of GMOs in accordance with the USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP). The NOP prohibits the intentional use of genetically modified organisms in organic products.
There is no conclusive evidence that GMOs benefit or hinder human health or the environment, but we feel that consumers have the right-to-know about the use of GMOs in the foods that they select for their families. However, Earth’s Best has voluntarily joined a U.S.–led, non-profit organization’s initiative called the Non-GMO Project (NGP) in order to help consumers identify products and make a consistent non GMO choice when selecting natural and organic products.. since there is currently no state or federal government regulations that quantify the levels of GMO.
At Earth’s Best® we believe babies and toddlers should be fed from the pure ingredients that the earth has to offer which is why we offer high quality, organic foods that do not use genetically modified ingredients.
GMO’s are plants, animals, and microorganisms whose DNA has been modified by non-traditional methods. These modifications take DNA from one strain of bacteria, plant or animal and insert them into another strain in order to change the characteristics of the original species.
At Earth’s Best®, we pride ourselves in organic farming using no potentially harmful pesticides or herbicides, no artificial preservatives, flavors or colors and no genetically engineered ingredients in our organic fields and crops. Our fruits and vegetables are grown organically producing great tasting foods for your baby and that you have come to expect from Earth’s Best.
