Nature’s Food Patch
Named One of Top 12 Right-To-Know Grocers
advocating for the labeling of GMO ingredients
Nature’s Food Patch employs GMO researcher Patience Melton, who is responsible for researching all products to verify if genetically modified organisms are present, as well as educating employees and consumers on GMOs. If a product is found to contain GMOs, Patience will actively seek out alternatives to find a non-GMO replacement for those items. If there are no alternatives for a product containing GMOs, these products will be labeled as GMO on the pricetag in the store to ensure customer awareness.
Genetically Modified Organisms are plants or animals derived from genetic engineering. One example is commercial GMO foods that are engineered to withstand direct contact with insecticide. While many countries around the world have significant restrictions or outright bans on GMOs, in the US, the government has approved the sale of GMOs, and it lies in the hands of consumers and grocers to educate themselves and actively opt out of purchasing GMOs.
