Why do you verify and market your popcorn Non-GMO when all popcorn is GMO free? Doesn’t that seem deceitful?
That is correct that most popcorn is free of GMOs (at the moment), however most consumers are not aware of this. Our retailers and consumers prefer the full disclosure from vendors and have demanded Non-GMO verification regardless. Since 90% of regular corn crops contain GMOs, we want to be completely transparent about popcorn being Non-GMO since it is from a different seed.
In addition, our popcorns do feature a number of seasonings, so the non-GMO verification also confirms any seasonings used are also non-GMO.
