From time to time we receive inquiries about how being non-GMO relates to USDA organic certification. The great news is that if you have found a USDA organic certified vendor/product you like, then normally you can feel confident that it is also non-GMO. That being said, if there is a farm producing USDA certified product that somehow ends up being Non-GMO, then they are breaking the law and you have recourse, no different than if they made a mistake or tried to trick any other certification body (e.g. 3rd part non-GMO certifiers).

Here are some exceedingly clear, unequivocal quotes from the USDA itself:

  • "No matter where it was grown if a product has the USDA Organic label on it, it wasn’t produced with GMOs."
  • "The use of genetic engineering, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs), is prohibited in organic products"
  • "Any certified organic operation found to use prohibited substances or GMOs may face enforcement actions, including loss of certification and financial penalties"
