Natural Foods Expo West

ew12_LogoToday is the first day of the massive gathering of natural food products here in Anahiem, CA. Natural? Organic? Local? I know! It’s daunting.

Non-GMO Verified is trending like wildfire here. This is incredible and inspiring.  Yet, I will say, I do see a reduction in the USDA certified organic label. Thankfully, the ingredients are still organic in many of these cases. I can understand the label aversion, given the costs to certify organic (an entirely different post of ethical proportions ).   While Non-GMO Verified is a brilliant scheme that is effectively chipping away at the achilles heel of the seed giants, it is imperative we do not abandone sourcing organic .  We must continue to turn to chemical-free farming methods that  protect our waterways and natural resources, while  nurturing our soil and our physical and environmental health.
