FAIRFIELD, Iowa (PRWEB) September 13, 2018
FoodChain ID, based in Fairfield, Iowa will be a featured vendor at the Natural Products Expo East 2018 (booth #2218) to be held in Baltimore, MD from September 13-15. The company’s USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verification and testing and services help natural product companies meet the growing consumer demand for food transparency.
Natural Products Expo East is co-located at the Baltimore Convention Center with All Things Organic/Biofach America, Natural Products Association East, and Harvest Festival. It is timed in early fall to offer an opportunity for natural and organic brands to tell their stories and showcase products ahead of the new year. It has become one of the industry’s premier events for products that center on health, wellness, community building and sustainability.
Foodchain ID is the leader in Non-GMO Project Verification and testing, and a global leader in Organic certification as well as certification and testing for other food and agricultural products. This allows global food companies achieve regulatory compliance and validate label claims.
As the natural products industry developed and both consumers and government regulators began to call for greater food transparency, FoodChain ID launched food safety and certification services such as the FoodChain ID (formerly Cert ID) Non-GMO Certification. The company’s Non-GMO certification is now the most widely recognized global standard for certifying Non-GMO food production operations in the world.
In fact, since 2007, as the founding technical administrator for the Non-GMO Project and a major contributor to its product verification program, FoodChain ID has verified three quarters of the Non-GMO Project Verified market in North America—over 50,000 products representing thousands of brands, manufacturers, processors, growers, distributors, packers, and exporters.
As food safety standards were put into place worldwide, global companies were required to navigate an increasingly regulated food economy. To meet this need, FoodChain ID offered key GFSI-benchmarked food safety and food quality certifications including SQF, BRC, GlobalG.A.P. and ISO 22000.
This demand for higher levels of transparency, accountability, safety and sustainability have fueled FoodChain ID’s growth. Most recently, the company acquired BioAgricert, an Italian-based company that specializes in worldwide certification of organic foods, which is a high-demand market segment.
The company now has offices in the U.S., U.K., Belgium, Brazil, Germany and Italy serving over 30,000 clients globally. Looking forward, Foodchain ID estimates having over 31,000 global clients by the close of 2018.
