"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers… look at these maple branches. Don't they give you a thrill—several thrills?" – L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
Yes, Anne with an “e,” the brilliant colors of October do give us “several thrills” indeed! Another thing giving us thrills about October is that its Non-GMO Month, which means we get to talk about our favorite subject: good4u food! Organic food is always non-GMO, but we think curious minds, like Anne’s, may sometimes wonder how, exactly, that is accomplished. So, in celebration of Non-GMO Month, we’re going to highlight some of the ways organic standards ensure the integrity of our food.
Understanding how the integrity of organic food is maintained every step of its journey to our table helps our family relax and think about other things, like planning our Halloween costumes and stocking up on organic treats for the tricksters. Just remember, if you’re doing some nonGMO treat shopping and organic isn’t an option, look for the Non-GMO Project Verified seal. And hey, while you’re at it, we hope you get “several thrills” out of October!
P.S. Have you heard that our entire bulk department is non-GMO? And have you tried the latest goodies from our organic house brand? It’s good stuff, and of course, non-GMO!
