TUCSON, Ariz., May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- shopOrganic.com is proud to announce that it has achieved a significant milestone by marking the 5th anniversary of its launch. Co-founder Susan Snedaker reflected on the past 5 years by saying "shopOrganic was founded with a vision to provide only the best organic foods and natural products. We've always believed that organics are an integral part of a sustainable future." Founded with the intention to 'do well by doing good,' shopOrganic is focused on organic and non-GMO products because of a strong belief that organic methods are ultimately more sustainable and better for the planet and everyone on it. All of their products are hand-picked using a rigorous selection process.
Last year, shopOrganic re-launched as 'shopOrganic & shopGMOfree', having verified that none of the products they carry contain GMO's (Genetically Modified Organisms). In an effort to vote with their dollars and encourage others to do so, they also removed products made by brands whose parent company donated money toward the opposition of labeling GMO's. Co-founder Lisa Mainz added "Our customers appreciate that we have culled our product line to be in tune with their values. By not carrying any products that contain GMO's, by continuing to focus on offering brands whose values align with our own, we have gained the trust of those that care about the health of their families, friends, and the Earth."
Co-founder Cara Silverstein remarked "I feel very positive about the future of shopOrganic & shopGMOfree. As awareness of GMO's and pesticides in foods grows steadily, we've also been seeing very steady growth in our business. In the U.S., the only way for consumers to be sure they are avoiding GMO's is to buy organic. The media attention that the GMO issue continues to receive is creating a wave of consumers looking for GMO-free products. When we re-launched last year as shopOrganic & shopGMOfree, we became the most trusted, go-to online organic foods store for those consumers."
Looking ahead, shopOrganic & shopGMOfree intends to continue to support a sustainable marketplace, working with vendors whose values align with theirs. The company is well on its way to becoming the trusted resource for organic and non-GMO information, market trends, sustainability issues, as well as recipes, tips and guidance and it's proud to celebrate its five year anniversary with its loyal customers and valued vendors.
