Supermarkets admit possibility of indirect GM ingredients

Is going organic the only way to avoid food from animals that could have been reared on GM crops?

Supermarkets admit possibility of indirect GM ingredients

When supermarket giant Asda suggested its customers buy organic meat a few weeks ago, it confirmed what a lot of people suspected about conventionally-reared produce. Supermarkets have admitted that non-organic meat could contain genetically modified ingredients through the use of GM animal feed – so how do you really know what you are buying when it comes to food?

Anything that is labelled organic from fruit and veg to meat, cheese, milk and even chocolates has to be produced under strict organic standards to ensure that nothing artificial has been used.

Riverford Organic’s fruit and veg is grown using soil, water and sunshine – and you can’t get more natural than that.

Indeed, anything that is labelled organic from fruit and veg to meat, cheese, milk and even chocolates has to be produced under strict organic standards to ensure that nothing artificial has been used. The result is fantastic-tasting produce without the health warning.

As well as being 100 per cent organically grown, much of the produce in a Riverford Organic veg box is also grown locally. It comes from Stockley Farm and other organic farms across the North West, which ensures it is as fresh as possible. And since the box contents are always seasonal, what you get from Riverford is about as good as it can get in terms of quality and flavour.

Whether you want to eat ethically or whether your buying habits are dictated by taste and price, a Riverford Organic veg box will tick all the right boxes.

And there’s no excuse not to be inspired and get cooking with between six and eight seasonal recipes included in every weekly box. Recent recipes include courgette and lamb meatballs; roast wet garlic and goat’s cheese toasts; toasted bread salad with basil and tomatoes; bunched carrot and dill salad and phat see iw (Thai-style greens).

Great for your conscience but even greater for your tastebuds. www.riverford.co.uk/stockley

Riverford Organic veg boxes are typically around 20 per cent cheaper than supermarkets and delivery is free (you don’t need to be in). Prices start at just £8.95.
