To help us celebrate the Non-GMO Challenge, we’ve partnered with some of our incredible Education and Outreach sponsors to share why they make the commitment to source non-GMO ingredients every day. We are grateful for the hard work of over 3,000 brands that make the nourishing non-GMO products that our families love. Together, we are all co-creating a non-GMO food supply for future generations.
Today the Non-GMO Challenge spotlight is on Wholesome!
Wholesome believes in creating the best-tasting products with real, clean and Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients. As the nation’s leader in fair trade, organic and non-GMO sugars, syrups, stevia and honeys, the company has been committed to organics since its founding in 2001. Wholesome has been dedicated to fair trade since 2005, paying more than $12 million in fair trade premiums to farming co-operatives and partners worldwide. Through these efforts, clean water, electricity, schools and health care have been brought to villages in Malawi, Mexico, Brazil and Paraguay.
Today, Wholesome continues to innovate and introduce more organic and non-GMO choices into the hands of consumers. In the last year, Wholesome has used its fair trade organic sugars to launch new product lines like organic frostings and organic candy. Maintaining its commitment to only using real ingredients, all of the company’s new items are free of synthetic colors and flavors and high fructose corn syrup.
In 2015, Wholesome acquired allergy friendly gummy candy brand, Surf Sweets. Made with organic and non-GMO fruit juices and sweeteners, Surf Sweets candy is not only delicious but has 100% Vitamin C in every serving. The candies are free of the top 10 most common food allergens, so families everywhere can enjoy a sweet snack. Surf Sweets is a proud member of 1% for the Planet, donating a minimum of 1% of the sales from products to a number of environmental organizations.
