Our policy, standards and purchasing crews depend on The Organic & Non-GMO Report to identify new sources of synthetic ingredients so we can avoid them. Without this important and focused resource, navigating the supply chain would be overwhelming, and setting clear comprehensive standards would be almost impossible. On the flip side, we often refer our vendors here when they are looking for non-GMO and organic ingredient sources.
