Is Pura Milk GMO Free?

Dear Zac,

Lion is committed to providing products of the highest possible standards in terms of quality and food safety.

Lion products are not Genetically Modified (GM) or derived from Genetically Modified ingredients, and we ensure complete compliance with National, State and Territory Food Stan

Lion will not accept milk which contains GM material.

Lion has an extensive QA program for its farm supply base, to ensure its milk supply is of the highest standards in terms of quality and food safety.

Scientific evidence establishes that GM material present in stock feed is not transferred to milk, because of the nature of the digestive system of the cow.  Even so, in recognition of some consumer concern, Lion recommends that farmer suppliers avoid GM feed for their cows.

Routine testing on finished product is carried out to verify that products are confirmed as GM free.

Lion is committed to complying with the Australian and New Zealand Foods Standards Code, and other applicable legislation in relation to products manufactured or sold outside of Australia or New Zealand. 

To that end, all products are labelled in accordance with the requirements of the Australian and New Zealand Food Standards Code.

I thought this might be useful information for those who are concerned about GMO foods.

Personally, having read this article below, I now regret previously financially supporting Greenpeace

The war against genetically modified organisms is full of fearmongering, errors, and fraud. Labeling them will not make you safer.
