Zulka® Pure Cane Sugar Announces Non-GMO Project Verification

All-Natural Sugar Brand Meets High Compliance Standards for Genetically Modified Organism Avoidance

Los Angeles (Sept. 21, 2012) – Zulka® Pure Cane Sugar, an unrefined and granulated “Morena” style sugar, today announced verification from the Non-GMO Project. This distinguished verification confirms that Zulka adheres to the organization’s strict best practices for GMO (genetically modified organism) avoidance, including segregation and traceability of ingredients to prevent contamination.

“We’re delighted to announce our verification and connect with new customers who have deep concerns about the presence of GMOs in the food they are eating and feeding their families,” said Carlos Rionda, vice president of sales and marketing for Zucarmex USA, the parent company of Zulka. “The Non-GMO Project seal on each package of Zulka lets consumers know they are buying a quality sugar that adheres to the Non-GMO Project’s rigorous standard. Zulka is all-natural, unrefined and minimally-processed, unlike commonly-used refined white sugars.”

Zulka Pure Cane Sugar is real sugar pressed from fresh sugar cane, which gives it a distinctively pure taste, natural aroma and rich color. A cup-for-cup replacement for refined white sugar, Zulka is perfect for any baking, cooking and beverage recipe in which traditional granulated sugars are used.

The Non-GMO Project’s verification seal is already included on all Zulka Pure Cane Sugar packaging. Zulka is available in one-, two- and four-pound bags at retailers nationwide, including Walmart, Safeway, Kroger, Albertsons, Food 4 Less, SUPERVALU, Superior, Winn-Dixie, El Super, WinCo and many others.
