Applegate has decided to remove genetically modified organisms (GMOs) from all products they are associated with. The company is the leading natural and organic meat brand in the U.S so it is a big victory.

The company had already removed GMO ingredients from all products last year, but this new commitment goes further down the supply chain to animal feed and includes third-party verification.

“It’s very significant that today Applegate is promising to go even further on our quest for transparency and traceability in removing GMOs from our entire supply chain, including the most problematic part – animal feed,” said Steve Lykken, Applegate president. “Exactly a year ago today, Applegate became a stand-alone subsidiary of Hormel Foods with the promise that we would continue to lead in changing the meat we eat, and that’s exactly what we’re doing.”
