Batavia, IL. June 1, 2015 – Oscar Newman LLC is pleased to announce that their foundation line of CocoTherapy brand of products, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Organic Coconut Chips are now Non-GMO Project Verified, emphasizing the brands promise to create the purest products possible with complete transparency to their ingredients. The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s only independent verification for products made according to rigorous best practices for GMO (genetically modified organisms) avoidance.
In addition to being USDA certified organic, being Non-GMO Project Verified is an additional layer to ensure the safest products possible. Being Non-GMO Project Verified includes procedural safeguards such as, but not limited to, ingredient segregation and traceability to prevent contamination. CocoTherapy is demonstrating leadership in the pet industry by earning Non-GMO Project Verification for their Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and CocoTherapy Organic Coconut Chips.
“Research shows that a majority of pet owners are very concerned about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in their food, which is why CocoTherapy is committed to producing pet products made from the purest ingredients,” says Charisa Antigua, Oscar Newman LLC CEO and co-founder. “Since the beginning, the integrity of our ingredients has been our top priority. We are fully committed to using only the highest quality ingredients and providing complete transparency about our ingredients to our customers. Earning the Non-GMO Project Verification further demonstrates our commitment, and we’re very proud of this accomplishment.”
Contrary to industry claims, GMOs have never been properly tested for safety. With GMOs now present in more than 80% of conventional processed foods, choosing Non-GMO-Project Verified products is the most reliable way to ensure that pet owners are avoiding GMO ingredients.
