Cafe Imports is now officially verified as a purveyor of non-genetically modified organisms by the Non-GMO Project. The green coffee buyer announced the certification via a blog post on the company website on November 4th. They join other coffee brands like Allegro and Anchorhead but are the first on the supply side to achieve the designation.
From Cafe Imports’ blog post:
Genetically modified food is a bit of a hot button issue for many: are GMOs dangerous per se or is there some level of accepted genetic modification, what are they doing to the environment, should GMOs be labeled on food products, etc. But with this certification, Cafe Imports circumnavigates the controversy entirely in hopes of providing more transparency to the end user.
