Twenty-five years ago, they began selling natural and organic foods with the belief that good food came from simple ingredients farmed from sources you could trust. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), because of their threat to human, animal, and environmental health, pose a threat to Woodstock's core belief of keeping it simple and eating because it's good.
What are Genetically Modified Organisms? Woodstock adheres to the definition according to the 1996 Organic Trade Association definition of Genetically Modified Organisms as those "… made with techniques that alter the molecular or cell biology of an organism by means that are not possible under natural conditions or processes." As such, GMOs may contain substances that have never been part of the human food supply.
Consider this… The governments of at least 30 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan and all the countries of the European Union, do not consider GMOs to be safe and are, therefore, significantly restricted or banned outright. Contrary to that widespread opinion, the US and Canadian governments have approved GMO crops for commercial use based on safety studies conducted by the same companies who developed the organisms.
There are concerns regarding the impact of GM foods including:
- An increased application of pesticides on GMO crops
- The possible creation of "Super" weeds or diseases that do not respond to current countermeasures which could devastate future crops
- The impact on ecosystems including insects and neighboring crops
What steps will Woodstock take?
- All of Woodstock products are enrolled in the Non-GMO Project, which is a third-party organization that tests and certifies a product does not contain GMOs.
- They are including the Non-GMO Project seal on all packages as they are verified so consumers can easily make a choice.
It all started for them over 25 years ago, when they began selling natural and organic foods with belief that good food came from simple ingredients farmed from sources you could trust. Over the years, we've all seen a lot of food trends come and go with plenty of experts telling us what, and what not, to eat. All along, their belief has remained the same. Keep it simple and eat because it's good!
