NGP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building and protecting a non-GMO food supply in North America.

Pectin, which is extracted from citrus peel, provides unique gelling, thickening and stabilizing properties in various food and beverage applications, including fruit juices, acidified protein drinks, jams, jellies, bakery mixes and fillings, dairy desserts and beverages, soups and sauces and it serves as a gelatin replacement in desserts and gels, amongst others.

“With our history of technical expertise, ongoing research and problem-solving with customers, we serve as an extension of a food manufacturer’s R&D team and understand the challenges of keeping up with food industry trends,” said Jérôme Béra, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing at CP Kelco. “We have seen increasing consumer interest in NGP-verified consumer products in North America and we strive to help our customers by achieving the verification for some of our key products. Shortening the NGP verification process makes it easier for our customers to introduce new products on shelves.”
