by Editor (comments: 0)

The US pasta and sauce brand Buitoni which is owned by Nestle announced to remove GM ingredients. The move was part of an ongoing effort to provide customers with good quality products they can trust, the company explains. Recently Buitoni has committed to sourcing ingredients that do not contain GMOs, reports Just Food.

Buitoni has always been a high quality brand. As brand manager Erica Starrfield is quoted, the company recognises that "more and more consumers want to understand where their food comes from and how it's made. Our move to no GMO ingredients and shorter, clearer ingredient statements are part of an ongoing effort to create pasta and sauces that families and individuals trust and continue to enjoy."

The GMO free ingredients has received non-GMO certification from third-party verifier SGS. The packaging will be redesigned and will carry a  "no GMO ingredients" logo. The reformulated products will be available in grocery stores throughout the US from October 2016.

Nestle announced already earlier this year to "simplify" its ingredients in order to meet shifting demand from consumers. Artifical colours, flavours, corn syrup and GMO ingredients should be removed from products.
