Oregon Growers was created with a goal of utilizing the bounty of the Hood River valley to create products that highlight and promote the work of area growers, and to support local family farmers who have been practicing sustainable growing practices for generations. We value where our food is grown and created, and feel that our customers should as well. That is why we chose to have our ingredients verified by the Non GMO Project, North Americaâ€™s only third party verification and labeling organization for non-GMO (genetically modified organism) food and products.
People Have a Right to Know
We chose for our products to become Non-GMO Project Verified, because we respect peopleâ€™s right to know what is in their food.
GMOâ€™s Have Not Been Proven Safe
Contrary to industry claims, GMOs have never been properly tested for human safety. We believe people have a right to know that the food they are eating and feeding their children is safe.
GMOâ€™s are Not Healthy
GMOs are engineered with bacteria and viruses to produce insecticides and survive heavy doses of herbicides. That is not healthy for us OR for the environment.
Choose Non-GMO Project Verified
With GMOs now present in more than 80% if conventional processed food, choosing Non-GMO Project Verified is the most reliable way for your family to avoid GMOs.
Other Countries Do Not Trust GMOs
In more than 60 countries around the world, including all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs.
