The Non-GMO Project Verified seal is another major leap forward for us in transparency around quality standards and assures our shoppers of our voluntary commitment to GMO avoidance.
Kalamazoo, Michigan (PRWEB) April 17, 2014
Simply Eight®, a Michigan-based company dedicated to simple foods, is pleased to announce that they have received the official Non-GMO Project Verified seal on their remaining three food products - Real Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, Real Chocolate Chip Chewy Granola Bars and Real Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chewy Granola Bars. Simply Eight LLC received its first Non-GMO Project verification back on January 31, 2014 for their Real Chocolate Chip Cookies.
"We are absolutely thrilled that all four of our products have now met the rigorous standards required to become Non-GMO Project Verified," said Ernie Pang, Simply Eight® LLC's Founder and CEO. "We share the growing concerns surrounding GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) and the unknown health implications of introducing those ingredients into our food supply. As such, by keeping ingredients simple, recognizable and uncompromised, we believe this ‘back to basics’ approach can help shoppers easily find more wholesome, less processed foods. The Non-GMO Project Verified seal is another major leap forward for us in transparency around quality standards and assures our shoppers of our voluntary commitment to GMO avoidance,” says Pang.
Each of Simply Eight’s products contains eight or fewer familiar ingredients. The company challenges the status quo of the processed foods industry and believes great tasting convenient breakfast and snack foods can be made simpler – without all the complicated inventions of modern food science.
All products are made with all natural ingredients – without any artificial preservatives/flavors/colors, hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) or genetically modified organisms (GMOs.) Also, each product contains zero grams of trans fat.
In light of reaching this latest milestone with Non-GMO Project Verification, Simply Eight® LLC is now poised to expand retail distribution beyond its home base in the Mid-West. As such, Simply Eight® LLC is in the process of establishing a national broker and distributor network to gain further market penetration with an initial focus in both West and East Coast regions of the U.S.
