Nestle Seeks to Remove GMO’s from Popular Brands

 

Nestlé Company continues to have some questionable practices, but we would like to acknowledge them for a step in the right direction. A recent announcement states; “The company is broadening its product offerings to give consumers more options with no GMO ingredients and identifying these products with the SGS-verified “no GMO ingredients” claim.” (SGS is a verification, testing and certification company.)

The latest Nestlé product to become completely GMO free will be their popular refrigerated pasta brand – Butoni. This follows the company’s announcement in April that six of it’s top-selling ice cream brands are removing GMO ingredients.

This demonstrates that consumer voices are being heard and it is possible to vote with your dollar. According to the Center for Food Safety, 92% of the U.S. population believe that GM foods should be labeled.

Keep up the good work! Continue to purchase products that do not contain Genetically Engineered ingredients. Click Here for a full list of non-GMO verified products.
