We support mandatory GMO labeling, in support of the consumer's right to know.

As the campaign to label food products made with GMO ingredients moves across the states, Earth Origins Market is proud to stand with the growing consumer movement for transparency, the right to know what’s in our food, by supporting mandatory GMO labeling legislation.

We will be placing labels on our shelves to help identify non-GMO items in our stores, allowing consumers to make an informed decision about their purchases.  We will commit to supporting brands and products which are sourcing non-GMO ingredients for their products. We will also encourage and motivate manufacturers to seek non-GMO source materials. 

We believe bio engineering of food is simply inconsistent with the very basic idea of natural food. We thank and encourage all those who are continuing this fight in support of transparency and the consumer’s right to know. Together, we will make a difference!

Thank you for your stand against GMOs. Will Earth Origins also label foods served in the deli? Ingredients in your deli foods are a concern because even the workers can't answer all the questions I have when I shop there (former Granary on Stickney Point in Sarasota). An all organic deli with non-GMO food would be most ideal & in keeping with your type of market. We all know the term "natural" is simply a catch phrase to lure consumers into believing the food is good for them. How committed is Earth Origins to serving truly healthy food in their deli?

We are committed to serving the highest quality and healthiest foods available. We use organic produce in our juice & smoothie bar, salad bar and deli prepared foods. Very soon our soup bar will be transitioning to an all organic program with delicious, healthy options. Rest assured, we have been evaluating the products used in our deli very closely. All ingredients do adhere to our strict guidelines for “natural”. We are shifting to ingredients which are organic whenever possible, with a goal to be 80% organic offering by the end of the year. You will find several organic side dishes in our hot bars as early as September. We hope you will give them a try!

My thoughts and concerns exactly....And EOs reply is encouraging as well that these things are being looked and soon changing for the better....So good to see the soups now all organic.....Just a thought, it may be beneficial to all if staff in all EO stores were informed regarding whats organic/non-GMO in deli and throughout store. I really appreciate Earth Origins stores and the professional/personable staff in Port Charlotte and am so happy to see that these issues are also the concern of EO.

Can you add a Blackberry template? This web page is tricky to read otherwise for those of us browsing with cell phones. Otherwise, in the event you can place a RSS link up, that would be good also. akdbcaadecac
