Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO's)
We have been long time opponents of genetically engineered (GE) foods, also know as genetically modified organisms (GMO). Our products only containnon-GMO ingredients, and we require proper documentation from our suppliers to this effect for any ingredient that may potentially be grown from GMO seed. In addition to simply having a company policy, we maintain our non-GMO diligence by:
- “Strip Test” every delivery of our organic soybeans (a crop with a dramatic GMO history and high level of potential contamination of non-GMO beans) when they are received at our Hood River, OR facility.
- Purchase ONLY certified organic soybeans and tofu. GMO beans are not allowed under USDA organic standards.
- Our soybeans and tofu are from North American grown soybeans.
Currently we are working closely with the Non-GMO Project, a new, collaborative effort to establish best practices for avoiding GMO’s in production. The Non-GMO Project also has a third party verification system in place to assess compliance with the standard.
