We will be gathering at 12:30 p.m. in building 25 at the Farmfest. Ken will be speaking at 1 p.m. – 1:45 p.m. on “Growing opportunities in the Non-GMO Market”. Non-GMO is one of the fastest growing segments of the food industry, creating new opportunities for food companies to produce non-GMO foods and for farmers to grow non-GMO crops. In this presentation, Ken will give an overview of the non-GMO market and discuss how farmers can tap into this fast-growing market segment. For information on Ken Roseboro and the Organic and Non-GMO Report go to www.non-gmoreport.com.
Representatives from GMO Free PA will be on hand to answer any questions that you may have about the organization and its mission statement. GMO Free PA is a grassroots group whose mission is to publicize the newest research and information regarding the risks of genetically modified foods, assist and educate consumers in selecting vendors and products that are GMO-free, and advocate for mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods. We believe in an organic system which promotes local food hubs, the dignity of the farmer that commits to the common good, including the care of the earth, sustainability and profit of the family farm.
