Non-GMO month is an excellent opportunity to educate and energize customers about choosing non- GMO verified products. Our customers were very excited to see all of the verified products available to them. Our events and promotions drove both sales and important dialogue around the threat of Genetically Modified foods. From shelf tags, posters and brochures to staff training material the project made it so easy to roll- out our celebrations. The micro site for retailers offers excellent, streamlined communications and the calendar of events helped keep us on track.
