For the past three to four years, new products have been vetted for suspect products. Foods that are likely to contain GMOs because they contain corn, sugar beets, soy - crops that are predominantly GMO - must be certified organic.
Product Removal Process
The store does carry some likely-to-contain GMO foods, but the owners are weeding them out over time, which Sue acknowledged is a difficult and time-consuming process.
The Co-Op is a Non-GMO Project Participating Retailer.
