House Foods America Receives Non-GMO Project Verification for Tofu

Garden Gove, CA (May 11, 2012) – House Foods America, premium tofu purveyor since 1983, is proud to announce that they have received Non-GMO Project Verification for their entire line of tofu. The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization offering North America’s only third party verification for non-GMO foods and products.

“We have always been dedicated to creating our tofu with US-grown, non-GMO soybeans here at House Foods, and we are thrilled and honored to have the third party verification from the Non-GMO Project,” says Yoko DiFrancia, House Foods’ PR and Advertising Manager.  “We understand how important it is for consumers to feel confident about what they are consuming, and we are committed to providing healthy, natural, and non-GMO tofu products.”

GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are organisms created through a relatively new form of biotechnology science.  DNA is merged together from different plants, animals, and bacteria, creating something that cannot occur naturally. The Non-GMO Project is committed to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products, educating consumers, and providing third party verified non-GMO choices.

House Foods America’s entire line of tofu, which includes their Bulk Tofu, Organic Tofu, and Premium Tofu in every firmness level and flavor, is now “Non-GMO Project Verified.” Consumers will be able to find the Non-GMO Project’s verification seal on all House Foods’ tofu products starting this fall.
