Silk Soymilk allows consumers to trace origins of soybeans

Silk Soymilk has announced a new website that will allow its customers to find out more about where their dairy free drink originated.

After joining the Non-GMO Project's Product Verification Program this year, Silk is allowing you to know everything you ever wanted to know about where the milk comes from and how it is made just by entering the manufacturing code and expiration date from the carton.

"Silk continues to broaden our commitment to transparency when it comes to how our products are made and where our ingredients come from," said Craig Shiesley, vice president for Silk. "No other soymilk maker shares more information with consumers about how their soybeans are grown and soymilk is made to create a complete crop-to-carton story. Our commitment to informing and empowering consumers is one reason why Silk remains the leading soymilk brand."

In addition to their efforts to keep the brand GMO-free, Silk is working with Conservation International to develop the Responsible Soybean Sourcing and Production Program with the aim of protecting the environment in which the soybeans are grown.
