GMOs? Not in Organic!
Recent news that the USDA has detected the presence of a genetically engineered strain of wheat in Oregon — a crop that’s not even allowed to be grown in the US — raises serious concerns for lots of folks.
At Earthbound Farm, we’ve always believed that everyone deserves to know exactly how their food is grown and what it contains, so they can make informed decisions about what they choose to eat. We work hard to ensure the integrity of our organic produce:
- In our fields we work with Nature, not against it — and we never use toxic synthetic chemicals, petroleum-based fertilizers or GMOs (check out our methods in Organic 101).
- We’ve built the most rigorous food safety system in the industry (because we believe that everyone deserves safe food).
- Our organic practices are audited and verified by third-party agencies, including California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) and BRC (British Retail Consortium), the global gold standard of best practices in the food industry.
We’re committed to providing the benefits of organic to as many people as possible. And that’s never going to change.
To know what’s in your food and avoid GMOs, choose organic for the foods you consume most, or whenever you can. It’s the healthiest choice for people — and the planet!
