July 4, 2013, Abbotsford, B.C. – Silver Hills Bakery is a Non-GMO Project verified member after passing an initial GMO audit by the non-profit organization.

 

As regulating bodies, scientists, and wheat producers point to the developing case in Oregon, Silver Hills has chosen to fortify their position as a Non-GMO Project Verified member by putting all wheat used in their bakery through rigorous third-party testing to further assure their customers that their bread is completely free from GMO contamination. Every single lot of wheat they receive is tested for both quality and genetic composition to ensure that no contamination has occurred.

"At Silver Hills, we believe that everyone has a right to know what's in their food and to choose whether or not to eat food that has been genetically engineered," says Stan Smith, President of Silver Hills Bakery. "As a company, we're committed to non-GMO ingredients because we believe food was created to be grown, eaten and enjoyed naturally without any fear of consuming a genetically compromised food source."
