Mile High Organics is Colorado’s Only GMO-free Grocer
BOULDER, Colo. & DENVER, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Mile High Organics, the leading certified organic grocery delivery service, is the first grocer in Colorado to screen out all trans-genetically modified ingredients (GMOs). Mile High Organics actively seeks to combat prevalent deception in the food system because they recognize the clash between what consumers want and what the marketplace is providing. Mile High Organics’ screening breaks the cycle of planting new GMO seeds by screening out suspect ingredients in food, packaging and products.
“We lead the industry in establishing the gold standard for food transparency; we aren’t going to argue the science, but we are going to fight for a persons’ right to know what they are consuming,” said Michael Joseph, CEO, President and co-founder of Mile High Organics. “We don’t believe that consumers should be choosing something that they aren’t informed about.”
It is currently legal to grow genetically modified crops in the United States and they can be sold to consumers without special labeling. Fifty countries, including the European Union and China, require labeling of GMO foods, and California has this as a ballot issue this November.
Mile High Organics has an extensive screening process in place to exclude products that contain GMO inputs. These include food, packaging, and products. “These can be as hidden as the corn used to make vinegar for pickles or the alcohol in baby wipes,” said Mr. Joseph. No other grocers in Colorado are touching this issue, despite consumer outcry.
Mile High Organics customers order online or by phone. The company serves the entire Front Range, including Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins and Colorado Springs. For delivery information visit www.MileHighOrganics.com or call 303-835-1212.
