Our Sourced Non-GMO Pledge

Throughout our nearly 40 years of offering whole grain foods for every meal of the day, Bob’s Red Mill’s top priority has remained consistent: Maintaining a commitment to source the highest quality ingredients available. Now, we’re taking that commitment one step further with our Sourced Non-GMO Pledge.

@BobsRedMill Sourced Non GMO Pledge

Our Sourced Non-GMO Pledge means that the ingredients we source for our wholesome products have been declared by their suppliers to be made without the use of modern biotechnology. The truth is, we’ve always sourced using this practice, but now we’re making our commitment visible on Bob’s Red Mill packages so that you can purchase with confidence.

So, when you see our Sourced Non-GMO Pledge on one of our packages, you can be sure that we’ve worked with our farmers and suppliers to source ingredients that were not genetically engineered. That work includes cultivating trusted relationships over many years and requiring documentation that attests to the fact that the ingredients have not been genetically modified through the use of modern biotechnology. For assurance, we conduct audits of our suppliers annually. We also source organic ingredients whenever feasible, and by definition, foods that are Certified USDA Organic are made only with ingredients that have not been bioengineered.

From our commitment to meeting the highest food safety standards in the country, to our dedicated gluten free production, to our strict organic protocols, and now, to our Sourced Non-GMO Pledge, we are continuously striving to build and maintain your trust.

Your website states that your products are GMO free, yet it does not state that on the different flour that you sell, so what about the flour?

I do not see this Sourced non-GMO pledge logo on the corn grits package I purchased this week. Does this mean they are not certified non-GMO? I love and use many of your products, I have read your pledge, and this is not consistent with your policy. Am I overlooking something? Thanks for your attention to this.
Peace

Our sourced non-GMO logo has just started being added to products. Yes, they are non-GMO, but we have not yet gotten it onto all of our packages.

Why do you use both your own Sourced Non-GM label and the Non-GMO Project verified label? The Non-GMO Project is an independent, third party standard (which they give access to on their web site) and verification process that I understand is only a couple of hundred dollars to go through per supplier. Are your other products not able to meet the Non-GMO Project standard and is that why you are using this other seal. Have you published your standard? My understanding is that vendor declarations are highly unreliable and that companies that mean well but don’t use best practices can easily become contaminated. It seems that you are settling for a lower level of rigor with your new seal. Am I missing something here? Why shouldn’t I be nervous about your use of an internal seal without any outside verification?

I HAVE LOVED YOUR POLENTA (GRITS), FOR A VERY LONG TIME. I AM EXTREMELY HAPPY TO FIND THAT THEY ARE NOT GENETICALLY MODIFIED. THANK YOU AND KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK!!!!
