Nasoya announces plan to display the Non-GMO Project Verification seal on pack in PR Newswire.

Nasoya, America’s #1 brand of tofu, today announced that all of its tofu products will soon display the Non-GMO Project Verification seal on pack.  Nasoya tofu has long been produced using Non-GMO ingredients, and the brand is proud to display the independent verification to help consumers make easy choices in order to avoid genetically modified organisms. The independent verification comes in time for October’s Non-GMO Month, and consumers will start to see the Non-GMO Project Verification seal on Nasoya tofu as early as November at grocers nationwide.
“Consumers overwhelmingly want to know what’s in their food with 92% reporting they want labeling on genetically modified foods1,” said Tim Kenny, VP of Marketing at Nasoya. “We’re proud to give tofu lovers what they want: a Non-GMO Project Verified option that’s available nationally. Both our core Nasoya tofu as well as our Tofu Plus will be Non-GMO Project verified.”
The Non-GMO Project provides North America’s only independent verification for products made according to rigorous practices for GMO avoidance. The Non-GMO Project Verification seal indicates that a product has been produced according to best practices for GMO avoidance, including thorough, independent testing of at-risk ingredients. The verification program demands ongoing evaluation of products, ingredients and manufacturing facilities to maintain compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard.
“We’re thrilled to add Nasoya tofu to our roster of certified Non-GMO foods,” said Megan Westgate, Executive Director of the Non-GMO Project. “The purpose of our labeling system is to empower consumers to make educated choices about what they feed themselves and their families. Nasoya’s Verified line of tofu is a brand consumers can trust is following our strict standard of avoiding genetically engineered ingredients.”

I will forever be grateful that I was introduced to the utility and beauty of hand crafted products early in life - from the symbolic motifs sewn into the coarse linen fabric of Croatian traditional wear to the colorful Kilim carpets that decorated the parquet floors in my grandmother's living room. I treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," the smell of the flower stalls in the open air market where my grandmother bought produce early every morning for the day’s meals and the summers spent at my great grandmother's where the village wags would come to gossip over thick, black Turkish coffee in her cool stone kitchen. Someone noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world - one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
