Non-GMO certification is being demanded more by Western consumers because of being more aware of health-related food ailments. Food allergies are on the rise and the global demand for halal products has never been higher at a time like this. Third-party non-GMO, gluten-free, halal, and allergen certification, auditing, and testing service to enable you to meet the market’s major requirements. You cannot judge your product to be non-GMO by yourself without an internationally approved third-party stamp.
More and more people are being diagnosed with food allergies and gluten intolerance (aka celiac disease) every year, and there is growing doubt about the safety and environmental impact of genetically modified (GM) crops.
Non-Certification is no different from other certifications because having, it gives you a chance of being judged on a level playing field and a chance of shelf space for your product on a retail shop floor. It is best to use an internationally approved testing, inspection, and certification body to do this because at the point of shelving, most retailers test the product again and if it fails at that point, you lose a chance of ever putting your product in any store of the retailer. The retailer would rather drop your product than face a backlash of a PR quagmire and high costs to change the conversation.

A Non-GMO Certificate of Verification (COV) tells the consumer that an individual product is Non-GMO verified. Each product receives a COV with an expiration date, a unique certificate number, and a scope of verification. All the information downstream clients need to confirm that the ingredients they seek are truly Non-GMO verified.
You can make the most of this verification by advertising your Verified status and providing a valid COV with every sale. International retailers would naturally gravitate towards your product because you are proving that you are compliant on an international scale and automatically you can attain higher premiums for your goods.
