Your A-Z guide to check the GM status of over 14,000 food products in the UK.
At last!... The UK's first mobile app that reveals the genetically modified (GM) status of thousands of foods across hundreds of brands on sale in British shops and supermarkets.
Having the Shop GMO-Free in the UK app at your fingertips is the no hassle way to discover which foods are guaranteed by their manufacturers to be free from primary GMO ingredients and free from secondary products (that is, ingredients derived from animals that were fed on GMO feed).
As well as helping you avoid GM products, this app can assist you in doing your bit to help rid the UK of GMO. Not only does the app enable you to contact the manufacturers of these products directly, it also includes a number of social media features that enable you to exert additional public pressure on these companies - all at the touch of a button.
The basic app is free and includes these features:
Unlimited searches - Unrestricted searching of our product database (over 14,000 products) to instantly find which products are GM-free and which are not.
Tell the manufacturer - Conveniently let the food manufacturer know what you think about the GM status of their products. You're just a tap away from contacting them by telephone, email or via their own contact page.
Tell the world - Share with the world the GM status of any product. Via facebook, twitter, google+, SMS or email, you can conveniently show friends about which products to stay away from and which are safe.
Tell us - Get in touch with us via the app with any product data queries/requests, technical issues or new feature requests.
Shopping list - Compile a shopping list of your favourite products. (One shopping list, limited to 15 products.)
Why GMO-Free? - General information on the dangers of consuming GM.
Within the app, you can upgrade for a small price to unlock these additional features:
Automatic notifications - Receive a push notification when we discover the GM status of any product on your shopping list has changed.
SmartSearch - If a product you're interested in isn't GM-free, just tap the SmartSearch button to find GM-free alternatives.
Unlimited shopping lists - You can create multiple shopping lists, each with an unlimited number of items.
Prioritised product data requests - If you want us to find product information for you, we will prioritise your request.
No advertisements - Of course!

THIS IS WEAPONISED SHOPPING!
The information in this app was compiled from correspondence between us and food manufacturers/supermarkets about the status of their products, in terms of whether they contain direct GM ingredients and/or ingredients derived from animals that were fed on GM feed.
By EU law, food producers are only required to list when direct GM ingredients are present in their foods. However, no such labelling is required for animal products used within food production where the animals were fed on GM feed.
You can read more about this - and about the dangers of such secondary GM products - within the app.
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.

Ratings and Reviews
I’ve downloaded the app! It’s asking me to register or sign in before I can use it! I put my information in and the app is not loading anything even after putting in my information! What a let down!

Please contact us direct as this is the most efficient way of us getting to your issue the fastest.
A question for the app developers. Plus Very useful & informative :)
I have a question for the app developers, I’m just curious of how you verify your information & how accurate it is. Do you contact the food providers or are you going in supermarkets & reading the ingredients or nutritional information. This is a great app & I’m happy to use it just wondered how you gathered your research & it’s accuracy that’s all. Would like to know out of curiosity.
Best app to use get to know what's inside your shopping
This app is a must in getting your shopping done without GMO. They tell you what to buy and what to avoid it's a must for the housewife, I love it. Just wish they can make it so you can scan the items as it takes me ages to look up what I'm buying but other wise great info.
