The family-owned and -operated dairy processor based in Petaluma, Calif., received the verification for eight of its organic dairy products from the Non-GMO Project.

Clover Organic Farms said it has received non-GMO verification for eight milk and cream products. The family-owned and -operated dairy processor based in Petaluma, Calif., received the verification for eight of its organic dairy products from the Non-GMO Project, North America's only third-party verification and labeling organization for Non-GMO food and products.

The organic beverages are: Vitamin D milk, low-fat milk, reduced-fat milk, fat-free milk, heavy whipping cream, half-and-half, low-fat lactose-free milk and reduced-fat lactose-free milk.

The dairy said it plans to introduce updated packaging to retailers soon, as well as additional Non-GMO Project verified products in the near future.

GMO's are an issue our customers are thinking a great deal about, and this verification allows us to show our commitment to meeting their needs for the cleanest milk available. We are very proud to be recognized as Non-GMO verified and believe this is an issue that will continue to allow us to engage in rich dialogue with our customers going forward."
