American seafood processor and distributor Orca Bay Seafoods has recently received verification by the Non-GMO Project as producing products free of genetic modification.

Products verified by the project may bear the seal of verification. Orca Bay received this status for its ahi tuna yellowfin steaks, Alaska cod fillets, Alaska pollock fillets, cod fillets, flounder fillets, haddock fillets, halibut steaks, keta salmon fillets, mahimahi fillets, ocean perch fillets, Pacific salmon fillets, scallops, sockeye salmon fillets, and swordfish steaks.

"At Orca Bay we value not only responsible stewardship and wise business practices but also the transparency of what is in food products – we are all consumers at the end of the day," said Lilani Estacio, Marketing and Communications Manager.

The Non-GMO Project was founded by retailers seeking clearly-labeled non-GMO food and products in North America. The project verifies non-GMO products through a process that includes ongoing testing, proof of rigorous traceability and segregation practices as well as annual maintenance audits.
