The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization that believes in offering consumers an informed choice about genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and is committed to building the non-GMO food supply, educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO options.
Gerard & Dominique items which will carry the new certification are: Smoked Wild Sockeye Lox (regular and sugar free recipes); Smoked Wild Coho Lox; and Wild Coho Gravlax. And, the company is already working with the Non-GMO Project to verify additional items.
“We’re very pleased to be working with The Non-GMO Project in our efforts to meet customer demands for transparency on this issue, and are thrilled to be among the first major brands in the smoked salmon lox category to do so.” said Karen Calvin Woodard, Vice President of SeaBear Company, the parent company of the Gerard & Dominique brand. “We will formally introduce packaging bearing the Non-GMO Project Verified logo at the San Francisco Fancy Food Show, and begin shipping to customers immediately afterward the show.”
The Gerard & Dominique brand was created in 1990 by celebrated chefs Dominique Place and Gerard Parrat to bring the culinary experience of European smoked salmon to their restaurants. Today, Gerard & Dominique smoked salmon is part of SeaBear Company of Anacortes, Washington (seabear.com) and is served in high end restaurants and hotels around the U.S., and available in select high end retail stores.
