Maia Yogurt Earns Non-GMO Project Verification

MaiaNew York, NY — Maia Yogurt, maker of a deliciously nutritious Greek Yogurt is proud to announce that they have received Non-GMO Project Verification for their core six flavors. As a company strongly committed to providing transparency in labeling to their customers, Maia is a brand that can be trusted as a non-GMO leader.

“Our mission is to bring the most delicious and nutritious local grass-fed cow’s milk yogurt to consumers. Non-GMO Project Verification is a big step towards earning their whole-hearted trust, and we are thrilled to offer our customers and trade partners assurance that we produce the highest quality and healthiest products possible,” said Hamilton Colwell, Founder Maia Yogurt.

GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses, and other animals and plants. These experimental combinations of genes cross the natural species barrier and have not been proven safe. Consumers are greatly concerned about this issue; a recent study conducted by Consumer Report indicated that more than 70 percent of consumers believe it’s important to avoid GMOs.

The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s only independent verification for products without GMOs (genetically modified organisms). The process for Maia’s Non-GMO Project Verification lasted 16 months, during which their ingredients underwent a rigorous series of audits and tests to ensure that they follow industry best practices for GMO avoidance—including testing, traceability, and segregation.

“We care greatly about our customers and their health, and we have made significant efforts to create the best product possible. Many dairy manufacturers cannot receive Non-GMO Project Verification due to the co-mingling of milk. We have invested significant time and resources to ensure that our product is non-GMO and are honored to be a leader in yogurt brands across North America with this verification,” added Mr. Colwell.

As Maia continues to grow and expand, they will remain committed to creating delicious, non-GMO yogurts that promise health and wellness in every aspect.
