Wellness pet food leads the way with growing list of GMO-free choices

Via PR Newswire - Wellness Natural Pet Food announces all their dry dog and dry cat foods are GMO-Free. The natural pet food leader's commitment to going GMO-free gives health-conscious pet parents more options when shopping for their four-legged family members.

"Providing GMO-free recipes makes it possible for consumers to make the same nutrition choices for their pets as they do for themselves," said Chanda Leary-Coutu, Wellness marketing communications manager. "We constantly strive to source the highest-quality ingredients available and we will continue to seek out and use GMO-free ingredients across a growing number of our products."

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are defined as organisms in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally.

In recent years there have been increased awareness efforts about GMOs and in 2010 National Non-GMO Month was created. This month is an opportunity to educate and inform consumers about what is in their food and their option to choose between products. Wellness marks October's National Non-GMO Month by pledging its commitment to offer more GMO-free options for pets.

Wellness offers a wide variety of natural food and treat options for dogs and cats of all sizes, life stages and lifestyles – including grain-free recipes and options for pets with food sensitivities. All Wellness recipes are free of added artificial colors, flavors and preservatives and contain no meat by-products, wheat, corn or soy.

At Wellness, they do whatever it takes to create the healthiest foods for the pets that depend on us. They believe food feeds our pets’ souls, sustains their lives and protects their bodies. For each of their recipes they never compromise - selecting nature's finest ingredients and combining them with unique super nutrients to help support whole body health and wellbeing. Like you, they know that pets provide us unconditional love, and providing uncompromising nutrition is one way we can do the same for them.
