Non-GMO Foods: U.S. Market Perspective
One of the biggest consumer concerns in the food industry today is whether or not foods made using ingredients from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are safe for human consumption. Related to this controversy is the issue of whether GMO crops are safe for the environment. In addition, advocacy groups are concerned that a few international conglomerates, through their ownership of GMO technology, can gain or consolidate excessive dominance of the global food supply.
There is widespread agreement within the scientific community that GMOs pose no threat to the environment or human health. Nevertheless, there is a broad base of concern among advocacy groups about GMOs, a concern driven in part by fear of unknown ramifications.
Packaged Facts’ report Non-GMO Foods: U.S. Market Perspective looks at the positive and negative data about GMOs; the body of opinion on the topic; the regulatory environment for GMOs; the stakeholders in the controversy; market size and projections for non-GMO products; and marketing and new product trends.
