Health-Conscious Storable Food Company GOFoods Global Commits to Use of Non-GMO Ingredients, Endorses Mandatory Labeling and Partners with JustLabelIt.org to provide a Nutriversal Seal on all GOFoods Global Packaging
GOFoods Global, creator of premium-quality shelf-life nutrition and storable foods, is partnering with JustLabelIt.org, a national non-profit organization that supports the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods, by posting non-genetically modified organism (Non-GMO) labeling on the back of every GOFoods product package.
SALT LAKE CITY, May 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- GOFoods Global, the nation's category creator in premium-quality food reserves and shelf-life nutrition announced today that it has become a partner with JustLabelIt.org, a national non-profit organization that supports the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods, and stands as an advocate for naturally produced ingredients with the GOFoods Global Nutriversal Seal on the back of every GOFoods product.
"At GOFoods Global, we take the high road to ensure that the full ingredient and nutritional composition of all our products, which are made for long-term storability, are clean and remain so for up to 25 years," said Brad Stewart, GOFood Global President. "GOFoods is so committed to giving you a right to know that we label our own products with our Nutriversal Seal, which proves our commitment to high quality standards in the food services industry."

The term genetically-modified organisms (GMO) is most commonly referred to a process where genetic engineering techniques have made specific changes to the DNA of a crop plant grown for human or animal consumption. These modifications are intended to introduce traits such as increased resistance to herbicides or improved nutritional content. These alterations have been linked to significant health issues including kidney and liver damage, infertility, auto-immune disorders, allergies, accelerated aging and birth defects. According to national reports, in 2011, about 88% of all of the corn in the US was genetically modified, and approximately 93–94% of the soy in the US crops was genetically modified.
"To date the United States has very relaxed laws relating to GMO standards," explains company President Brad Stewart. "For those who do a little bit of research, they'll find that the biotech companies are building products to be resistant to herbicides, rather than improving nutritional content."
Non-GMO labeling is a growing concern among United States citizens, and GOFoods goes to great lengths to insure none of its ingredients come from sources that use GMO techniques. This month, residents in California submitted almost one million petitions in support of the Right to Know Campaign and will now be put on the state's November ballot.
