Our Non-GMO Standards
We are proud to say that Michel de France Crepes, wraps and wafers are made with non-GMO ingredients.
When we refer to genetically modified organism, we are using this term as most widely understood in the US. A genetically modified organism (GMO) is any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through cross breeding methods.
Michel de France adheres to sourcing “non gmo” ingredients by origin for use in our product. Our suppliers are following guidelines to ensure the ingredients they provide to us are “non-GMO by origin”:
- All suppliers must use “Non-GMO by origin” ingredients in the manufacture of items supply to us
- Non-GMO by Identity Preserves (IP) is acceptable. IP requires practices and processes for controlling contamination from at risk GMO inputs and ingredients. Many suppliers choose to supply ingredients that meet this standard but it’s not required. Non GMO IP is also considered non GMO by Origin
- Suppliers of raw materials must take measures to segregate GMO and non-GMO materials at all times and ensure proper cleaning measures are employed
- “PCR testing” refers to the Polymerase Chain Reaction test that can be used to detect genetic material (DNA) in a sample. It will be used as a verification tool when appropriate
This standard does not address animal feed. The eggs and milk source from farmers is conventional sourced. It is common practice for feed to contain GMO ingredients and we are encouraging suppliers to convert to non GMO animal feed.
