Hershey to ban GMOs from products

Following Nestlé’s announcement to ban artificial ingredients from their products, a press release was released stating the intentions of Hershey to ban GMOs from their products.

The Hershey will ban GMOs from popular products like Kisses and Hershey’s Milk Chocolate by the end of 2015.

We all want and deserve to know what’s in our food. Hershey takes pride in listening to our consumers and customers and understanding what they need. We will continue to make our great-tasting, high-quality iconic brands that people know and love. We also will share more information about what goes into our products in ways that are easy to understand and access,” said John P. Bilbrey, President and CEO of The Hershey Company.

Hershey has committed to start using real ingredients like fresh milk from local farms, roasted California almonds and more.

The company will also move to real vanilla instead of artificial vanillin, non-GMO sugar, and milk from cows that have not been treated with growth hormone.

The Hershey Company is also planning on releasing new products with simpler ingredients. “In 2015, Hershey plans to introduce in the U.S. new snacking products such as Brookside Dark Chocolate Fruit & Nut Bars, which will feature a lineup of simple ingredients, and transition some of its most popular chocolate brands, including Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates and Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars to simpler ingredients,” according to the press release.
