"We're excited to partner with an industry innovator like Living Naturally that is enabling retailers to make confident buying decisions based on the Non-GMO Verified status of products." -Chris Keefe, Retail Programs Manager for the Non-GMO Project

Living Naturally is joining the Non-GMO Project to give retailers and consumers one-click access to lists of Non-GMO Project Verified items, allowing them the opportunity to make fully informed decisions through the BuyingGenius procurement system and WebGenius e-commerce tool.
This feature will help buyers find and choose products that have been Non-GMO Project Verified, an assurance that a product is produced according to consensus-based best practices for GMO avoidance. As a result, retailers can help empower shoppers to make informed decisions regarding what ends up on their families’ plates.
"We have the unique ability to leverage our technology solutions in order to ensure smarter ordering decisions. The best way for us to utilize our resources is by giving Non-GMO Project Verified items their own category in BuyingGenius," said Dan Clarke, CEO of Living Naturally. "This relationship represents perfect synergy of our technological solutions, and Non-GMO Project’s great cause."
The two organizations celebrated this new partnership at the Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore on September 28, with an annual reception to highlight the beginning of Non-GMO Month.
"Living Naturally is helping retailers provide choices to their shoppers," said Retailer Programs Manager Chris Keefe. "We're excited to partner with an industry innovator like Living Naturally that is enabling retailers to make confident buying decisions based on the Non-GMO Verified status of products."
Later this year, Living Naturally will provide the same type of sorting for its consumer-facing websites. Online shoppers will have the opportunity to filter options and select Non-GMO Project Verified items.
