It stands for Non-Genetically Engineered/Non-Genetically Modified Organism; by definition, all organic materials are Non-GE/GMO, but Non-GE/GMO doesn’t necessarily means is organic.
Non-GMO doesn’t mean that is organic, it only stands that the produce has not been genetically enhanced or modified, but it can still be treated with exogenous aid, for example a natural grape plant, planted in enriched soil will provide grapes with seeds what makes it Non-GMO, but the nutrients placed in the soil or the use of pesticides makes it not organic; a seedless grape plant will provide grapes with no seeds, meaning that the plant was genetically engineered to have no seeds,(by use of modern biotechnology and molecular biology to introduce new genetic material, or delete or alter existing genetic material) making it a GMO. Yet organic does not allow any GMO for produce, meaning that no plant, animal or organism has been genetically changed and artificially enriched, but instead have been grown or farmed without the use of any exogenous aid, artificial chemicals, hormones, or antibiotics. Following our previous example, the natural grape plant that hasn’t been altered genetically, is planted in bare local soil with no more nutrients that the ones already present in such soil, if the plants survives, it will provide grapes with seeds and is classified as organic since it was only exposed to natural nutrients and contaminants, free of any artificial additives.
