Non-GMO Project Data Drop – May, 2022

Watch for synbio ingredients! Why?

Because customers are still shopping for non-GMO choices that exclude synbio.

  • 65% of shoppers worry about the long-term impact of genetically engineered foods on our collective health.
  • 60% of shoppers react negatively to the term synbio, which is why GMO companies are rebranding and using a host of other names such as “precision fermentation”  to appeal to shoppers and make GMOs sound more natural.
  • 230+ = The number of companies using synbio technology the Non-GMO Project is monitoring in the food and ag sector.
