Del Fresco Produce Ltd.’s products have been certified GMO-free.
The designation applies to all of Kingsville, Ontario-based Del Fresco’s greenhouse-grown vegetables, according to a company news release.
“This was a natural progression for us,” Ray Mastronardi, Del Fresco’s vice president, said in the release. “The industry is heading this way now and we feel it’s vital to be ahead of the curve.”
Soon, Mastronardi said, Del Fresco will begin labeling its packages with a “Non-GMO” label.
Del Fresco grows a variety of greenhouse tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, eggplants and European slicing beans.
