As part of Silk’s ongoing commitment to educate consumers about what’s in their food, the entire plant-based beverage portfolio is enrolled in or verified by the Non-GMO Project. The Non-GMO Project provides independent verification that Silk’s products are made without GMOs, earning The Non-GMO Project Verified seal.
We recently launched a new, exciting product – Silk Iced Latte. At the time of launch, this product was enrolled in the Non-GMO Project program, and we are happy to report that it’s now officially verified. The Iced Latte packaging will be updated in June with the Non-GMO Project Verified logo, giving our consumers the opportunity to make informed choices about the foods and beverages they eat and drink.
Thanks to all who donated to Community Food Share (our local food bank) last month. Two weeks before the deadline, CFS raised the $1 million it needed to receive a $2.5 million gift from an anonymous donor!
The $1 million raised, combined with the $2.5 million donation, will allow the food bank to pay off the initial loan it took out to buy its new space in Louisville. The new space is triple the size of Community Food Share’s current space, which means CFS will be able to house more fresh produce and frozen food, and therefore help even more families in need.
WhiteWave Foods is proud to be a longtime sponsor and supporter of Community Food Share.
In the spirit of Luana’s post, and knowing more about where your food comes from, two members of our Silk team were nice enough to document their recent trip to one of the groves that supplies our Silk Pure Almond, almond milk’s almonds. Check it out…
The Grove is located in California, and just like our soymilk, the almond milk is Non-GMO...
And no, they don’t pick them out of the trees, they shake ‘em out…
After the shaker does its thing, the almonds sit in the sun for 2-3 days to dry out a little...
Then the harvester picks up and separates the nuts from the leaves and dirt, and off they go to our production facilities
