Non-GMO Project Product Approval
The Non-GMO Project Product Verification Program is the only third-party verification program for non-GMO food products in the United States and North America. As it stands, this third party verification is the utmost quality system as it pertains to product labeling and certification. The certification process ensures that products have been thoroughly evaluated by a third party for compliance. Companies work directly with third party technical personnel in order to verify their products. For those consumers who want to avoid GMOs, the Non-GMO Project Verified seal is found to be the only “highly meaningful” seal and label. Del-Val recognizes this consumer feedback, and is excited to offer our customers Non-GMO Project Verified Yeast Extracts.
Non-GMO Project Approval Process
Those that have embarked on NGP (Non-GMO Project) verification certification understand that it can be a time-consuming process. Our Quality Department started by registering with an NGP approved Certification Body. After providing extensive information pertaining to each raw material, NGP did a thorough investigation and analysis of each raw materials origin, paying special attention to any high-risk materials. Product testing is also a considered factor. After the evaluation process and desk audit, an approval decision was made accompanied by a yearly certification visit. Steps to NGP Verification as dictated by the NGP website are listed below.
Step 1: Select a Technical Administrator
First, select from 4 technical administrators.
Step 2: Sign the Non-GMO Project license agreement
Second, sign the licensing agreement, which outlines parameters of program participation.
Step 3: Complete a product evaluation with your technical administrator
This step includes a document, product, and process review. Product testing and onsite inspection may occur depending on a risk assessment performed by the technical administrator.
Step 4: Promote your verification
Verified products can be listed on the Non-GMO Project website. Promotion of verified products has a marketing benefit to those looking to avoid consumption GMOs.
Step 5: Annual renewal
Lastly, undergo an annual renewal of the Non-GMO Project Verified certification.
