It is our policy not to use genetically modified seed and/or fresh potatoes in our products. However, we also recognize that science holds the potential to address many issues that challenge agriculture and sustainable production of affordable and nutritious food, in light of a growing population. This positive potential of science drives our continued interest in science-based plant and varietal improvement, including biotechnology. As such, we actively monitor and may participate in research and development that seeks to offer science-based improvements and social benefits. Regulatory compliance and consumer acceptance for the use of any new technology will guide our actions.
Providing consumers with safe products is a top priority for Irving Farms and we understand that some consumers have questions about genetically modified food and food ingredients. Please visit www.factsaboutgmos.org for more information about ingredients and plants derived from biotechnology.
