Valley Oils Earns Non-GMO Project Verification on Entire Product Line
Valley Oils is proud to announce that we have received Non-GMO Project Verification for our entire line of products: Extra Virgin (Expeller-Pressed) Canola Oil, Refined Canola Oil, and Canola Meal.
“We are very excited to receive Non-GMO Project Verification,” says Keith Walker, Valley Oils CEO. “This validates our commitment to bringing our customers the highest quality products designed in a system to maximize transparency and traceability. We structured our supply chain to ensure the integrity of our products, from supplying local growers with seed to processing with only natural ingredients. By targeting new areas where canola is not presently produced, we are able to expand the sources of Non-GMO products as well as the economic opportunities for our growers and promote responsible and sustainable practices.”
Valley Oils chose to get our products Non-GMO Project Verified because we respect people’s ability to make informed decisions about the products they choose to purchase. The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s only independent verification for products made according to rigorous best practices for GMO (genetically modified organisms) avoidance. Our verified products are produced in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard – that means ongoing testing of all major GMO risk ingredients, facility inspections and an annual audit to ensure we’re meeting the highest possible standards for GMO avoidance.
Based in San Diego, CA, Valley Oils concentrates on the development and commercialization of unique, value added specialty products for food and industrial uses. Our goal is to provide quality non-GMO products for greater food and feed security, offer viable plant-based solutions for certain specialty and fine chemical production and create new economic opportunities for farmers and rural communities.
