Barney’s Premium Foods Achieves Prestigious Non-GMO Project Verification

– Barney’s Premium Foods is proud to announce the verification of Barney Butter Crunchy and Smooth by the Non-GMO Project –

FRESNO, Calif. – Barney Butter is pleased to announce that its 100 percent all natural almond butter has earned the esteemed Non-GMO Project Seal. Made from all natural California almonds, Barney Butter’s smooth and crunchy almond butter joins over 200 other brands with products verified by the Non-GMO Project. A non-profit collaboration of manufacturers, retailers, distributors, farmers, seed companies, and consumers, the Non-GMO Project is dedicated to the shared mission of ensuring the sustained availability of non-GMO natural and organic product choices.

Genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, are organisms whose genetic makeup has been modified through DNA methods like gene splicing, gene modification, or transgenic technology. It is estimated that GMOs are present in more than 80 percent of packaged products in the average U.S. grocery store.

For CEO Dawn Haden, verification by the Non-GMO Project was an important next step. “We’ve always taken great pride in our commitment to providing consumers with a top quality, all natural product,” said Haden. “It is unquestionable that the all-natural, healthy food movement is in full swing, and we are pleased to stand at its forefront. With Non-GMO Project Verification, our consumers can feel confident that Barney Butter products have been produced under the most rigorous practices for GMO avoidance.”

The almond butter, which is manufactured under strict sanitary conditions in an almond-only facility, is 100 percent gluten-free and vegan-certified. A healthier alternative to peanut butter, Barney Butter has fewer calories and less than half the saturated fat.

Barney Butter products are available at grocery stores nationwide, and other major retailers and independent grocers across the country, as well as at www.barneybutter.com. Barney Butter retails for $5.99 to $6.99 for a 10 oz. jar or $7.99 to $9.99 for a 16 oz. jar.
