Venus Wafers launches Non-GMO certified Stoned Wheat crackers

Hingham, MA

(Virtual Press Office) -- Venus Wafers announced today that they will be launching full size Non-GMO certified stoned wheat crackers under their The Original Mariner Biscuit Company brand. Venus previously received authority from the Non-GMO Project to display their seal of approval on their Bite Size Stoned Wheat Crackers and are now adding the original larger size to this new and expanded range. The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s only independent verification for products made according to best practices for GMO avoidance.

GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organisms) have been linked to potential harmful affects to health and the environment. “We care deeply about this issue and we believe people have the right to know what they are eating,” said Venus Wafers President Michael Thompson. Thompson went on to say, “the re-launch of our Mariner water crackers earlier this year was well received and we are convinced that adding both sizes of stoned wheat crackers to this Non-GMO range will further enhance its appeal. We are committed to being a Non-GMO commercial bakery.”

The Mariner Biscuit Company Stoned Wheat Crackers have also been verified Vegan by the Vegan Action/Vegan Awareness Foundation and certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union. The new packaging carries both of these symbols as well.
