Mangia, Inc. offers first Non-GMO Project verified imported Italian tomatoes and beans

Mangia, Inc, the manufacturer and importer of Carmelina ‘e…San Marzano Italian Tomatoes and Carmelina Brands Italian Beans is thrilled to announce that its brands are now Non-GMO Project Verified.

Participating in the Non-GMO Projects’ Product Verification Program was a natural fit for Mangia, Inc. whose mission is to provide customers with clean, quality, artisan ingredients from the southern region of Italy, including Campania. Mangia, Inc. has developed and maintains strong relationships with its Italian co-packers and suppliers to insure the quality and consistency of its supply chain, including the sourcing of non-GMO ingredients. Mangia, Inc.’s product offerings are among the cleanest on shelf. Its Carmelina ‘e…San Marzano® Italian Tomatoes contain only tomatoes packed in tomato puree, and its Carmelina Brands® Italian Beans contain only beans packed in water. There are no added preservatives like salt, sugars, calcium chloride, citric acid or EDTA to alter its products’ fresh flavor profile.

There are already significant GMO restrictions and bans in nearly 65 countries around the world, including all of the countries in the European Union. And now 37 U.S. states are looking at mandatory labeling. People have a right to know what’s in their food. Mangia, Inc. President and CEO Matt Maslowski agrees, “Shoppers are savvier when it comes to reading food labels and demanding non-GMO options. This information should be available on labels for consumers to make informed purchasing decisions. They’re already doing this type of labeling in Europe. We’re very excited to be at the forefront of the Non-GMO Project’s labeling initiative in the United States.”
