Organic Alberta’s Value Statement

One of the founding principles of organics is that organic products are free of genetically modified/engineered organisms (GMOs/GEOs). Organic Alberta supports this principle and the right of consumers to have this choice. We also support the right of our producers and processors to not be contaminated by genetically modified organisms and to seek financial remediation when this occurs.
