Cafe Imports Is Now Non-GMO Certified

Cafe Imports is now officially verified as a producer 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:

Like the Non-GMO Project, we believe “That the integrity of our diverse genetic inheritance is essential to human and environmental health and ecological harmony.”

We also oppose the fact that the easy and clear labeling of food products that include GMO’s has been majorly and unfairly fought by the GMO-Food industry. For these reasons, we took the step to become certified through the Non-GMO Verify project. Our commitment to our customers is to never work with GMO coffee in an effort to help maintain the integrity and consumer clarity of a product we all care for so much.

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.
