Sesame King Tahini has received verification by the Non-GMO Project for their Roasted and Light Roasted Tahini pastes. Participating in the Non-GMO Project Verification Program was a natural step for Sesame King Tahini, whose mission is to provide its customers with a healthy, nutritious and safe tahini.                                                                                                                                         

The Non-GMO Project is North America’s only independent verification organization for foods produced in accordance with its standard for avoidance of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The organization uses a process that combines on-site facility audits, document-based review and product testing to verify compliance with the standard at every level of the supply chain, from manufacturing facilities to ingredient suppliers. The Non-GMO Project shares the belief that everyone deserves an informed choice about whether or not to consume genetically modified organisms.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have both our Roasted and Light Roasted Tahini Non-GMO Project Verified. As a leading manufacturer of tahini, our never ending goal is to produce tahini products that taste great and provide consumers with a healthy food choice. Healthy is good.
