Certifications

We work with various entities to certify our products and adhere to standards set forth by these governing bodies. A few certifications featured on our website include, USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified and Kosher.

What does USDA Organic mean?

USDA Organic products have strict production and labeling requirements. In order to use the USDA Organic seal, products must meet the following requirements:

  • Produced without excluded methods, (e.g., genetic engineering, ionizing radiation, or sewage sludge). USDA policy on genetically modified organisms [PepsiCo to provide link, leave as # for now]
  • Produced using allowed substances. National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances [PepsiCo to provide link, leave as # for now]
  • Overseen by a USDA National Organic Program-authorized certifying agent, following all USDA organic regulations.

What does it mean to be Non-GMO Project Verified?

The products displaying the Non-GMO Project Verified seal have been evaluated by a third-party technical administrator and meet the Non-GMO Project’s Standard according to best practices for GMO avoidance. [PepsiCo to provide link, leave as # for now]

What are the types of Kosher?

Foods can be assigned to one of five Kosher designations based on the designation of the equipment on which is prepared.

  • Pareve = The product is pareve (Neutral)
  • Dairy = The product contains dairy
  • Fish = The product contains fish
  • Meat = The product contains meat
  • Passover = The product is certified kosher for Passover

How can I tell if a product is Kosher?

All products that are Kosher will have a symbol on packaging noting the type of Kosher and the certifying organization. To view which products are Kosher on this website, use the filters in the section for Claims & Certifications on the Product Finder page. Please note that Kosher Passover is not included in the filters because this is often a temporary certification made only during the Passover season.
