The Right To Know What’s In Your Food
By Jared Simon
(Director of Marketing, Hain Celestial)
Do you trust the ingredients list on something as simple as a bag of tortilla chips?
There’s a good chance that list isn’t telling you the whole story, since the United States has no laws that require labeling of genetically modified foods.
The food industry has changed dramatically since Garden of Eatin’ was founded 40 years ago. What hasn’t changed is our vision as a company: to use only the best tasting, natural and organic ingredients in everything we make.
We believe in natural and organic food because it’s better for the environment, better for animals, and better for you. While the vast majority of the corn consumed in the United States today is genetically modified, we still use organic corn, harvested by our sustainable farming partners. Our commitment to utilizing the highest quality ingredients has helped Garden of Eatin’ become the number one brand of natural and organic tortilla chips.
We want our customers to be absolutely confident in every product they purchase with the Garden of Eatin’ brand logo on it, which is why all of our products are Non-GMO Project Verified. This verification is clearly labeled on every bag we sell.
We believe that all snack customers deserve the same level of transparency when it comes to what’s inside their food. We are proud to join Just Label It! to support Initiative 522 in Washington state which is a crucial fight in the battle to compel food companies to label all products that contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
We strongly urge you to learn more about Initiative 522 and the importance of food labeling transparency. For more information about Garden of Eatin’ , please visit our website or join us on Facebook.
Show your support for Initiative 522 and the overall fight to convince food companies to label all products by sharing the image above on your Facebook page and encouraging friends and family members to do the same. You have the right to know what’s in your food!
