Trader Joe's Grocery Store
Have you ever been to Trader Joe's?
It is not a utopia, but I like it.
They have organic produce, sprouted bread, nitrate and preservative free cold cuts, hormone and antibiotic free meats (FREE of PINK SLIME or what is known as "boneless lean beef trimmings or lean finely textured beef"), and sometimes raw cheeses. Plus, I really like their coffee...my downfall.
Read what they say about GMO's and their products here:
Trader Joe's Products are Sourced from Non-GMO Ingredients
"Our customers can be assured that all products in Trader Joe's private label are sourced from non-genetically modified ingredients. Our efforts began in 2001, when we determined that, given a choice, our customers would prefer to eat foods and beverages made without the use of genetically engineered ingredients. Our process has been to identify any product containing ingredients that could potentially be derived from genetically engineered crops and work with our suppliers to replace offending ingredients with acceptable alternatives."
Locally speaking there is a Trader Joe's on 59 Woodruff Rd, Greenville, (864-286-0231) but if you are not local and want to check them out for yourself, visit their store locator here.
