Hain Celestial secures Non-GMO Project certification for Dream brand

Hain Celestial has earned the certification of the Non-GMO Project for its range of non-dairy Dream yogurts in the US.

The range, including Almond Dream and Coconut Dream, is on sale with the Non-GMO Project seal on-pack.

"Dream non-dairy yogurts have always been made with high-quality ingredients and the verification from the Non-GMO Project provides an additional level of assurance to our consumers and customers," Basel Nassar, COO of Hain Celestial's refrigerated foods division, said.

Nassar added the certification "provides a rigorous approval process from ingredient sourcing through manufacturing to ensure that genetically modified organisms are not intentionally added to products".

Hain Celestial is among a number of US manufacturers to have sought certification from the Non-GMO Project.

Last month, US snack maker BFY Holdings relaunched some of its products, including PopCorners, under a new umbrella brand made with ingredients verified by the.Non-GMO Project.

This summer, Hormel Foods launched the first Applegate products with the seal.

In May, ConAgra Foods said it was moving its Alexia potato products to ingredients certified by the organisation.
