Non-GMO Project Masters Rapid Growth with Intact Platform Solutions
The Non-GMO Project is a mission-driven nonprofit organization dedicated to building and protecting the non-GMO food supply, educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO choices. It runs the Non-GMO Project Standard, North America’s leading independent non-GMO verification program. The iconic Non-GMO Project Verified butterfly is the label consumers seek and trust for GMO-free food and products. Non-GMO Project Verified is one of the fastest-growing labels in the retail sector.
The Non-GMO Project’s Initial Challenge
The demand for GMO transparency has skyrocketed since products started to get verified in 2010. The Non-GMO Project’s verification program has experienced exponential growth ever since. At present, there are more than 3,000 Non-GMO Project Verified brands, representing over 50,000 products, and more than $ 26 billion in sales. To keep up with its rapid growth, the Non-GMO Project decided to implement a professional IT solution for managing its standard and verified products, brands, and companies. The main software requirements where:
- Increased verification process efficiency
- Elimination of multiple data inputs
- Quick and easy data exchange with verification and certification bodies
- Publicly available online product listings that are synchronized with the database to allow shoppers to search for verified products
