Magazine plays major role in advancing multi-billion-dollar non-GMO market
Submitted by The Organic & Non-GMO Report
FAIRFIELD, Iowa, April 21, 2021 /CSRwire/ - More than twenty years ago, journalist Ken Roseboro had an idea for a publication that focused on the market for non-GMO (non-genetically modified) grains and foods. At the time, the market for non-GMO foods was barely in its infancy. Despite that, Ken had the foresight to see a strong market emerging and launched The Non-GMO Report in 2001.
Fast forward 20 years, Ken’s foresight was correct, and The Organic & Non-GMO Report has played a leading role in advancing the non-GMO market, which has grown to more than $30 billion in annual sales. Mainstream food companies such as Danone, General Mills, and PepsiCo now promote their Non-GMO Project Verified products.
“In the past 20 years, non-GMO has grown from an obscure grain industry term to be one of the most recognized labels in the food industry,” says Ken Roseboro, editor and publisher of The Organic & Non-GMO Report. “Our magazine has supported that growth by providing reliable information and reporting as well as sources for non-GMO ingredients with our annual directory, The Non-GMO Sourcebook.”
“Trusted voice in the industry”
Industry leaders recognize the value of The Organic & Non-GMO Report as the respected source for information about the fast-growing organic and non-GMO markets.
Kellee James, CEO of Mercaris, a leading organic and non-GMO market data firm, says: “I rely on The Organic & Non-GMO Report to understand the news and trends that are impacting our sector. It really serves a unique need, since it’s the only publication dedicated to organic and non-GMO ag. It covers a stunning range of topics: from research developments, regulations and marketplaces to consumer sentiment and really helps me get a full picture what's going on in this area of food & agriculture.”
Tonya Lofgren, Marketing Manager at Ciranda, Inc., an organic and non-GMO ingredient supplier, says: “The Organic & Non-GMO Report is a trusted voice in the industry, providing the latest updates on the ever-changing organic and non-GMO landscape. In addition to the magazine and newsletter, their annual Non-GMO Sourcebook and online supplier directory are valued resources that bridge the gap between buyers and suppliers.”
