Verified by the Non-GMO Project means Sunwin Stevia's products are free from any GMOs and can legally use the non-GMO label

Sunwin Stevia International, one of the top global suppliers of high quality stevia extracts, including Rebaudioside A 98 and Rebaudioside A99, has announced that Qufu Shengren Pharmaceutical Company, Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sunwin Stevia, has obtained certification of non-genetically modified organisms (Certificate No. 52462).

The Non-GMO Project's Product Verification Programme (PVP) is a process-based and product-based programme designed to assess compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard.

The core requirements are traceability, segregation and testing of high-risk ingredients at critical control points. The Non-GMO Project's PVP is North America's only independent, standard-based tool for ensuring that a product comes from best practices to avoid GMOs.

Non-GMO PVP is the fastest growing label in the natural products industry, representing $11bn in annual sales and more than 27,000 verified products. With consumers today, the Non-GMO Project seal is the most trusted sign that a product comes from best practices for GMO avoidance.

Ms Dongdong Lin, CEO of Sunwin Stevia, stated: 'Verified by the Non-GMO Project means Sunwin Stevia's products are free from any GMOs and can legally use the non-GMO label to be sold in any green market. Management is very pleased that its stevia products have achieved non-GMO verified status and passed the on-site inspection and document-based evaluation.'

'Management believes that the potential to penetrate a multiple billion green market is substantial, as more and more people realise that natural products are better for our bodies, better for our communities and better for the planet," she added.
