SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Pacific Pickle Works, the Santa Barbara, CA food brand bringing fresh-from-the-field crunch and full-bodied flavor to center store, is proud to announce that the company’s award-winning line of 11 all-natural pickled vegetables has earned Non GMO Project Verification.
Hand-packed within 24 hours of delivery, every batch of bold and spicy “West Coast” pickles features peak-season produce, sourced locally and organic whenever possible. Sporting playful names such as Jalabeaños, Unbeetables and Brussizzle Sprouts, all of Pacific Pickle Works’ Non-GMO Project Verified products are also naturally gluten free, fat free and kosher, with zero artificial ingredients or refined sugars.
For founder and CEO, Bradley Bennett, maintaining the Non GMO Project Standard aligns seamlessly with the company’s enduring commitment to a superior-quality, clean label consumer experience.
“As a small business, we may lack the resources to run national ad campaigns,” said Bennett. “But the effort that the Non GMO Project has put into building consumer trust and educating consumers on GMOs helps our brand cut through the noise to reach a wider audience.”
The Non-GMO Project’s Verification seal indicates that a product has been manufactured according to best practices for GMO avoidance, including thorough vetting of the supply chain and ongoing product evaluation. New labels bearing the organization’s iconic butterfly logo roll out online and to stores beginning January 2018.
About Pacific Pickle Works
Pacific Pickle Works was founded in 2010 by Bradley Bennett, a Santa Barbara native whose spicy homemade pickles began as holiday gifts for friends and family, and quickly sparked a craving amongst locals. Today, the company’s Union St. factory hand-packs its signature West Coast pickles all year ‘round, each batch a refreshingly crunchy, full-flavored salute to peak-season produce that lifts the pickle from sidekick to standalone snack. Pacific Pickle Works’ full line of pickled vegetables is non GMO, naturally gluten free, fat free and kosher, offering shelf-stable convenience with zero artificial ingredients or preservatives. In 2016, the company launched an all-natural trio of one-step savory cocktail mixers that pair perfectly with a pickle garnish. Pacific Pickle Works is currently carried in 500+ retail and foodservice locations, including Whole Foods Market, Sprouts Farmer’s Market, New Season’s Market, Bristol Farms, Draeger’s Market and Lazy Acres. With its playful branding and bold flavor profiles, the company looks forward to delighting customers around the world as they gather together around the table.
