– Red’s 100% All Natural frozen burritos is one step closer to earning the coveted Non-GMO Project Verified seal –
Fairfield, Conn. – Red’s 100% All Natural might be a newcomer to the burrito arena, but it’s certainly ahead of the game when it comes to high quality, all natural food. The Connecticut-based company wasted no time standing behind its name when it announced its enrollment in the Non-GMO Project Verification process. The Project, a non-profit collaboration of manufacturers, retailers, distributors, farmers, seed companies, and consumers, is dedicated to the shared mission of ensuring the sustained availability of non-GMO natural and organic product choices.
When the verification process is finished, Red’s will join over 200 other brands with products that have been produced under the most rigorous practices for GMO avoidance. Genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, are organisms whose genetic makeup has been modified through methods like gene splicing, gene modification, or transgenic technology. It is estimated that GMOs are present in more than 80 percent of packaged products in the average U.S. grocery store.
For founder and CEO Mike Adair, enrollment in the program was not even a question. “’All natural is in our name. It’s who we are. We don’t want to be a part of that statistic,” said Adair. “We want people to feel confident that when they’re enjoying our product, they’re enjoying only the highest quality, all natural ingredients.”
Manufactured under strict sanitary conditions, each 11 oz. burrito is crafted with antibiotic and hormone-free meats, and stuffed with the freshest veggies, and highest quality beans and spices, all cradled tight in a homemade, wheat flour tortilla. Full of protein and low in sodium, Red’s All Natural burritos are sold frozen in 4 different combinations that can be enjoyed by meat-lovers and vegetarians alike: turkey molé, chicken, steak and bean and rice. They are available at prices ranging from $4 to $5 at select retailers nationwide.

ABOUT RED’S ALL NATURAL
It all began on a Tuesday night in 2008 at the New Hampshire trailer of high school sweethearts Mike and Paige Adair. Busy with graduate school, the couple designated Tuesdays as sacred burrito night. But it wasn’t sacred for long, as word had quickly spread around town about Paige’s gift for all things burrito, and it wasn’t long before the whole neighborhood was lined up outside their door. Paige’s creation was an obvious hit, so Mike combined his business background and love for food with his wife’s infamous burrito recipe and Red’s All Natural was born. Named after their adopted dog, Red’s sold its first 100 percent all natural burrito in New England in 2010 and has since grown to include four frozen burrito combinations sold at retailers nationwide.
