TVP - February 98 GMF
Our supplier of TVP wrote: `We are the ONLY company in Europe to give an absolute guarantee that our soya products are produced from non-genetically modified beans. We can do this because our operation uses only certified seed stocks which are monitored by both the Brazilian government and our own internal farm supplies decision. This seed stock has been fully protected against contamination by genetically modified beans currently available in North American and other countries, since we were made aware that such alternatives were commercially available. The Brazilian government has given us assurances that they will support our efforts to maintain this seed stock being free of genetically modified alternatives for as long as our market requires and would in any case continue to assess this need against those of other interested parties. (We) have no intentions to change (our) policy on genetically modified products.'
GOODNESS FOODS OWN LABEL PRODUCTS
Our own label products are GM-Free.
GOODNESS FOODS - OTHER BRANDED PRODUCTS
We will not wholesale products which are labelled as genetically modified. Current legislation requires GM products to be labelled and any food that contains protein or DNA of GM origin. Oils, lecithin and other processed ingredients are exempt from labelling because GM protein and DNA are deemed to be absent. Goodness Foods is fully committed to ensure that all the products which we supply are totally GM free, and to this end we seek guarantees from all our suppliers. Our definition of `genetically modified' includes ingredients and material derived from GM sources, even where these do not have to be declared according to current legislation.
We are pleased therefore to be able to state that Goodness Foods is totally GM free across the whole range of branded foods according to our suppliers' guarantees.
