Services and Fees

Services: For four years I was a Technical Evaluator at FoodChain ID, one of the Technical Administrators for the Non-GMO Project’s (NGP) Product Verification Program. As one of three Senior Technical Evaluators on the FoodChain ID staff, I helped hundreds of clients demonstrate compliance of their products, ingredients and production facilities to achieve final verification on thousands of products. Since 2016, I have leveraged my knowledge of certification programs to help dozens of companies meet their certification goals.

While my main focus is Non-GMO certification through the Non-GMO Project’s Product Verification Program, I also help clients achieve Organic, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Plant-Based, and other third-party certifications.

My consulting services include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Advising on the documentation required for faster approval and certification
  • Acting as the liaison between brand owners and suppliers/co-packers
  • Assisting with formulating compliant products
  • Non-GMO/Organic/Gluten-Free/Vegan/Clean-Label ingredient sourcing
  • Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) development for ingredients and facilities
  • Training staff on completing paperwork and/or navigating FoodChain ID’s SupplyTrak database (Non-GMO Project Verified only)
  • Guidance on standard/certification program changes and annual renewals


Hourly consulting rate: $170
