Sebastopol, California (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
In celebration of Non-GMO Month, Huilerie Emile Noël announces its continued commitment to providing the highest quality artisan olive, nut, and seed oils by becoming Non-GMO Project Verified. The verification applies to Emile Noël’s variety of virgin-pressed oils, including the mild olive oil, robust olive oil, sesame oil, roasted sesame oil, sunflower oil, pumpkin seed oil, hazelnut oil, walnut oil, macadamia nut oil, and sweet almond oil.
"For 30 years, Emile Noël has maintained a strict policy of zero GMOs. We see the Non-GMO Project as a citizens' movement—one that demands for brands to be transparent on the presence or absence of GMOs," says David Garnier, CEO of Huilerie Emile Noël. "It is important for us to be part of this movement: Emile Noël’s bottles will proudly display the Non-GMO Project Verified logo to better inform customers."
The Non-GMO Project’s Product Verification Program is designed to test whether a product has met defined standards for the absence of GMOs. Compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard means that the company will submit to ongoing testing of all GMO risk ingredients, facility inspections and an annual audit to ensure the highest possible standards for GMO avoidance.
Says David Garnier: "Emile Noël is a mix of traditional practices and innovation; to protect the artisan traditions, we became the first French mill to use only organic seeds and we pioneered socially responsible trade years before it was called ‘fair trade’."
Since 1920, Huilerie Emile Noël has remained dedicated to artisanal practices, preferring gentle extraction methods to preserve the rich, complex flavors and nutritional benefits of nut and seed oils. Emile Noël’s variety of cold-pressed olive, nut and seed oils are now available in the United States at select Whole Foods Market.
