Why does non-GMO matter if the ingredients are certified organic?

While GMOs are banned from foods certified organic (like MELT Organic), USDA enforcement on genetic testing is lacking for verifying non-GMO status with high risk ingredients (e.g., canola, corn, soy, alfalfa, sugar beets, zucchini, cotton, etc.) whose organic seed may have been contaminated by neighboring farms. For this reason, some food companies choose to voluntarily go the next level with a non-GMO certification from the Non-GMO Project because they are widely regarded as having the highest standards and require genetic testing of high risk ingredients regardless of whether they are certified organic or not.
