Olisur, certified “Non-GMO verified”
Olisur S.A., leading producer of extra virgin olive oil from Chile, has been certified Non-GMO Project Verified (free of GMOs in their production) for its brands O-Live&co and Santiago Premium, after overcoming a rigorous evaluation and evidence confirming that the ingredients used for the blends of their products have not been genetically manipulated. NON-GMO Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to inform consumers about the quality and components of food, so they can have the right to choose and consume products with or without the seal. According to a recent study by Consumer Report, over 70% of Americans say they do not want genetically modified organisms (GMO) in their food, but over 80% of processed foods contain these ingredients. This opens interesting perspectives for Chilean brand in the United States and Canada, where they can be found in more than 10,000 stores and now has a certification that can substantially increase the level of sales in both countries.
