Nyack, NY (PRWEB) March 26, 2012
Q.bel Foods LLC is pleased to announce that Q Thins, its 100% natural new whole grain wafers with double dark Belgian chocolate, have earned the verification seal of the Non-GMO Project.
“Getting the seal was not easy, but we think it was worthwhile,” said Q.bel founder Bahram Shirazi. “We created Q Thins to address consumers’ desire for delectable treats that are more wholesome. Whole grains and 100% natural are part of it; Non-GMO Project verification is another step in the right direction.”
Genetically Modified Organisms (“GMOs”) are organisms that have been created through the gene-splicing techniques of biotechnology. Virtually all commercial GMOs are engineered to withstand direct application of herbicide and/or to produce an insecticide. Despite biotech industry promises, none of the GMO traits currently on the market offer increased yield, drought tolerance, enhanced nutrition, or any other consumer benefit.
The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit collaboration of manufacturers, retailers, distributors, farmers, seed companies, and consumers, dedicated to the shared mission of ensuring the sustained availability of non-GMO natural and organic product choices. The Project’s Product Verification Program is entirely voluntary, and participants are companies who see the value of offering their customers a verified non-GMO choice.
Q Thins are light and crispy whole grain wafers with double dark Belgian chocolate. They can be found in the cookie aisle at natural foods retailers nationwide, usually selling for $3.29 - $3.49.
The Q.bel product line was launched in January 2009, with an initial national rollout by Whole Foods Markets. Since that time, the product has been selected by many leading retailers in the health and natural foods industry. In less than two years, Q.bel sold over two million candy bars, attaining the number one rank in the “All-Natural Chocolate Wafer” category.
