GMO Inside Congratulates Post On Non-GMO Grape-Nuts

Post Foods informs GMO Inside that Grape-Nuts Original will be Non-GMO Project Verified and will be available starting in January 2014

WASHINGTON, Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — GMO Inside, a national consumer campaign of Green America that educates consumers about GMOs, has learned from Post Foods that the company is rolling out Non-GMO Verified Grape-Nuts in January 2014.

The company wrote the following in response to a request from GMO Inside: “We have an exciting update for you. Post has released a non-GMO verified Grape Nuts that is on the store shelves as of January, 2014. Also, we are exploring some of our other cereals to see if there is potential going forward to add more non-GMO verified products to the Post Foods product line. We are always listening to our consumers and looking for ways to provide a good variety of products.” Post’s move closely follows that of General Mills, which released non-GMO original Cheerios in early January, though Cheerios is not third-party verified.

“GMO Inside thanks Post for removing GMOs from Grape-Nuts Original and congratulates them for doing it right with third party verification,” said Green America GMO Inside Campaign Director Nicole McCann. “We’re glad Post is also considering removing GMOs from other cereals and look forward to seeing them on the shelves. We would also love to see Post supporting mandatory GMO labeling.”
