Global Non-GMO Food Market: Overview
There is growing understanding of shoppers about the science of genetically modified organisms in the food industry. Food manufacturers have reciprocated the changing preferences of consumers by offering them more choices. The non-GMO food market has evolved steadily in the light of this. Proponents of non-GMO foods have reiterated on the adverse health and environmental risks of food products containing GMO. The risks they emphasize are in relation to the presence of unique toxins and allergens in the food chain.

Moreover, the lack of standardization in food labelling and the absence of clear labelling system may be considerable challenges in the steady evolution of the market. However, with shift of shoppers toward more transparency in labelling will help manufacturers and retailers in the non-GMO food market overcome a number of the aforementioned challenges.
