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. The Non-GMO Project label will appear on the front of the Clover Organic packaging. The company has 61 SKUs of organic and 121 SKUs of natural dairy products all from small family farms in Northern California.

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."
