ORGANIX, the leading organic pet food manufacturer, has earned Non-GMO Project Verified status for their canned pet food recipes that are made with organic chicken. The company offers the most complete line of certified organic natural pet food made under the United States Department of Agriculture’s National Organic program.
ORGANIX achieved the status after going through a rigorous verification process that only recognizes the best practices for GMO avoidance in recipe ingredients. Castor & Pollux, the creators of the ORGANIX brand, was acquired by Merrick Pet Care, Inc. in 2012. Merrick is the only U.S. manufacturer certified to make both wet and dry organic pet food.

The verification was achieved after an in-depth audit of both the pet food’s ingredients and the company’s manufacturing facilities to ensure that ORGANIX is meeting the highest possible standards for GMO avoidance. Now, 10 ORGANIX canned dog and cat foods will bear the Non-GMO Project Verified seal.
