Nestlé just announced it will be removing all GMOs from six of its top selling ice cream brands. This action is in an attempt to “evolve with consumer preferences.”

“On a journey to evolve with consumer preferences and offer greater choice, Nestlé Dreyer’s Ice Cream, the largest ice cream maker in the world, announced today key ingredient improvements to six iconic brands including Edy’s®1, Häagen-Dazs®, Outshine®, Skinny Cow®, Nestlé® Ice Cream and Nestlé® Drumstick®. This is the latest milestone in a multi-year effort to update existing products across the entire portfolio of brands. With a focus on simplifying ingredient lists while maintaining the same great tastes consumers have grown to love, the newest changes vary across more than 100 products, with examples including the removal of artificial colors and flavors, high fructose corn syrup and GMO ingredients.”
Many major food companies like General Mills, Kellogg’s, Mars and ConAgra, have recently agreed to label GMOs in their products and now Nestlé has jumped on the bandwagon. The company has also made other healthier changes to improve their product including using fresh milk from cows not treated with rBST and using more real fruit or fruit juice to help reduce the amount of sugar consumed.
