Our Commitment is 25+ Years Strong
Since 1984, Kashi has cared about making foods with the health of people and planet in mind. We've stayed true to our 7 whole grain roots and remain passionate about providing a progressive and holistic approach to nutrition. Now we're taking our mission a step further. Today, only 1% of U.S. cropland is organic and around 70% of packaged foods contain GMOs (genetically modified organisms). At Kashi, we want to do our part in creating a more balanced food system. We're still small at heart, but big enough now to make a meaningful impact.
Eleven Foods Already Non-GMO Project Verified.This long-term commitment follows the Non-GMO Project Verification of eleven Kashi foods earlier this year, including:
A Rigorous Verification Process
- The Non-GMO Project is the leading independent verifier of non-GMO foods and the only third-party verification system in the U.S.
- All Kashi foods that have met its rigorous standard will carry the Non-GMO Project Verified seal.
- The process is multi-step and involves segregation, traceability, risk assessment, and ongoing testing of all major GMO risk ingredients at critical control points.
- Verification can take several months depending on many factors.
“When people see the Non-GMO Project verification mark on a product, they can trust that it’s been made in compliance with the best possible practices for GMO avoidance.”
-- Megan Westgate, Non-GMO Project executive director
Kashi’s Non-GMO Project Verified Product Commitment.
Our commitment: By the end of 2015 over half our food will be Non-GMO Project Verified.* But we won't stop there. We'll continue to increase the use of organic and Non-GMO ingredients where possible while making sure to continue to provide the positive nutrition you expect from us.*based on pounds
