NEW NON-GMO PROJECT VERIFIED SUNNY DOG BARKIN’ HERBS & GARLIC CHEDDAR

In 2017, Bothwell Cheese launched a line of Non-GMO Project Verified cheese that included three cheddars: Medium White Cheddar, Old White Cheddar and 548 White Cheddar. As a company with a long history of introducing innovation in cheese, it was time to develop something new and exciting to add to our Non-GMO offering. Earlier this year we launched Sunny Dog Barkin’ Herbs & Garlic Cheddar as the first flavoured cheese in our Non-GMO lineup.

WHAT DOES NON-GMO MEAN?

To understand what Non-GMO means, it’s important to know what GMO stands for. Genetically Modified Organisms are living organisms that have been genetically engineered or modified in a lab. GMOs are common in animal feed which directly effects eggs, milk, meat, and other products. Most of the world’s GMO crops are engineered so they can endure herbicides and other chemicals.

Alternatively, Non-GMO ingredients have not been altered in any way, shape, or form. Bothwell’s Non-GMO cheeses are strictly made with milk that comes from cows that are only fed Non-GMO crops. These cows live on dairy farms that are verified by the Non-GMO Project and meet the standard for the seal. Currently, sixty-four countries require GMO foods to be labelled, however Canada (the fourth largest producer of GMO crops1) does not require any GMO labelling.

 NON-GMO PROJECT VERIFICATION PROGRAM

The Non-GMO Project Verification Program is North America’s only third-party program for verifying product ingredients. Its seal gives consumers the guarantee that a product has completed comprehensive third-party verification for compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard.
