Dannon Unveils Non-GMO, Less-Sugar Yogurt

by Julie Fidler, Natural Society:

On July 13, Dannon executives unveiled Dannon and Oikos Greek yogurt products containing more natural and non-GMO ingredients. [1]

The company plans to highlight the non-GMO ingredients on all of its product packaging. It is also ensuring that by the end of 2018, all cows that supply milk for these products (as well as its Danimals brand) will be fed non-GMO feed, which will impact some 80,000 acres of farmland.

Additionally, Dannon has launched a series of initiatives and partnerships aimed at promoting the production and certification of non-GMO feed.

Mariano Lozano, CEO of Dannon U.S., said in an e-mail to Forbes:

“We believe it’s the right thing to do because consumer preferences are continuing to evolve and we put consumers at the center of every decision we make.” [1]

Dannon’s parent company, Danone, said its recent $10 billion acquisition of WhiteWave Foods Co. may help speed up the process of ridding its products of GMO ingredients. [2]

      Agreed. As the Chinese say, “A journey of 1,000 miles (kilometers?) begins with the first step”. This seems just such a step. It also points out something that is rather obvious, yet is often over-looked. When competition and advertising are harnessed for progress, there is very little need for market depressing legislation. If enough businesses can be convinced to voluntarily offer “non-GMO” foods and label them as such, we may come to a point where everything that is not so labeled MUST be a GMO product to be avoided. This is MUCH better than trying to force GMO food purveyors to toe the line and label their own products as GMO foods. They are reluctant to do this and for good reason. They know that a lot of their customers would choose a healthier alternative if one were clearly available. 🙂
