Silly Cow Farms Hot Chocolate Earns the Highest Certification Marks!

Non GMO ProjectAt Sillycow Farms, we do things the natural way. Set the highest performance standards. Work hard to make things right. Work with only the best business partners. Use Only the Finest Real Ingredients …. all of which you can spell and pronounce. It’s all part of our commitment to creating the best-tasting, premium Hot Chocolate beverages that drives everything we do - all day, every day.

Today, we are proud to announce that after completing their rigorous application and evaluation program during the First Quarter of 2018, Sillycow Farms Hot Chocolate received official certification as being Non-GMO from The Non-GMO Project. The Non-GMO Project is a mission-driven nonprofit organization offering a third-party non-GMO verification program to the standard consumers expect.

An independent study by Consumer Reports found the Non-GMO Project Verified seal to be the only “highly meaningful” label for consumers looking to avoid GMOs 1. The credibility that comes with Non-GMO Project verification will allow Sillycow Farms Hot Chocolates to reach a wider customer base, assuring shoppers that our brand of products meets the best practices for GMO avoidance.

Certified Gluten-FreeOf course, this is not the first third-party certification that Sillycow Farms has earned. The brand has also been certified as Gluten-Free by The Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO).

Established in 2005, The Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) is an industry program of the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG), dedicated to providing certification services to producers of gluten-free products using quality assessment and control measures throughout production, in order to provide assurance to consumers of the safety of their foods. In 2016, Sillycow Farms successfully completed the certification process and began using the organization’s official symbol on all of our products.

Fair Trade CertifiedAnd the third official certification program that Sillycow Farms has earned is from the Fair Trade USA organization. This group works to enable sustainable development and community empowerment by cultivating a more equitable global trade model that benefits farmers, workers, fishermen, consumers, industry, and the earth.

By-the-way, all Sillycow Farms products have always been made with NO corn or high fructose syrup solids, have NO Trans fats, NO added sodium, NO artificial flavors or sweeteners and NO artificial growth hormones (rBST) and are also Nut and Peanut Free.

We can’t wait to introduce Sillycow Farms premium Hot Chocolate to as many consumers as possible, so that everyone can enjoy our decadently delicious and comforting chocolate beverages. Earning these official certifications of Non-GMO, Gluten Free and Fair Trade, signal to consumers that our products are “clean-label” and wholesome. Once they try Sillycow Farms, they will see how great they taste too!

Our tradition of quality and integrity may seem silly to some, but that's what we know and believe in. Call us Silly, but we like it that way....and think you will too.
