Mid Summer Update

Hello CSS!


We have many exciting updates for you today.


We have been continuing our work with the Non-GMO Project and have made great progress on coming into alignment on the issues in our original white paper. In a show of commitment, the Project outlined their plans and commitments to us including timelines in a letter which is being distributed to the CSS membership via email. Each of the items within our white paper are being dealt with. We believe the effort overall will be successful and that the way that the Non-GMO Project's Standard will be interpreted by technical administrators going forward for our industry will make it more viable for more companies. 


We have also had continuing conversations with NSF and iGEN about their emerging programs. Both groups have been open to our comments and have taken our feedback seriously and we are planning to work with them very closely going forward. After we submitted original comments to their first draft, NSF is organizing a teleconference with CSS and other supplement industry stakeholders on their supplement standard at the end of this month. (Details have not yet been announced.) 


The Non-GMO Project has also invited members of our group to be on a panel at Expo East. Bethany Davis from FoodState, Sara Newmark from New Chapter, Sandy Kepler from Non-GMO Global (official consultant to CSS) and Megan Westgate from the Non-GMO Project will be doing a panel together discussion entitled "Vitamins and Supplements Going Non-GMO" and we will discuss the unique difficulties for our supply chain and the value of the work that CSS is doing.  It is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday at 4:15 so mark your calendars! 


We are also going to be having an in-person CSS meeting at Expo East this September. If you are not a currently member of CSS and are interested in becoming one, please reach out at bethany@foodstate.com so that we can let you know the details of that meeting. For members, save the dates will go out shortly. 


We will follow up with more updates as they become available!

    I learn something tougher on distinct blogs every day. Most commonly it really is stimulating to learn to read content material from other writers and exercise a specific thing there.
