GMO Corn and Soybeans – Soybeans processed with Hexane

At Bell & Evans our Certified Organic chickens and turkeys are fed non GMO Certified Organic corn and soybeans.  Our soybeans are extruded and expeller pressed into meal. No GMO seed is allowed by U.S.D.A. Organic Certifiers as enforced by division of U.S.D.A.

Bell & Evans sources only U.S. grown grain, whenever possible.  If we come up short, we may buy a limited amount from Canada or Argentina.

We do not Import Organic Grains from China.   With the cost of Organic grain being more than twice the cost of conventional, many dishonest operators have entered the business.

Bell & Evans non Organic Certified chicken products.

I would be very happy to produce all of our chickens & turkeys without using GMO grain.  At this time it is not possible for Bell & Evans to do that because of the following reasons:

  • There is only a small percentage of non GMO grain producers left in the U.S.
  • The Ethanol demand continues to take acres away from Organic and non GMO grain production.
  • There is no U.S.D.A. or Certified enforcement for non GMO grain production or handling.
  • As soon as we can find a reliable, honest source of non GMO grain, we will be very happy to deliver.
  • I believe when we sell a product or a service to a customer, we need to deliver what they thought they bought.

We will double our efforts on procuring non GMO grain and will report again in the near future on the situation.

No Bell & Evans diets contain Hexane processed soybeans.

  1. What about the corn used for the gluten free chicken nuggets and tenders? And the soybean oil used to flash fry them? I am so happy to see a gluten free option for my family that is so delicious, but am very worried about GMO’s. I would love it if you could offer an organic gluten free nugget/tender.
    Thank you for being such a conscientious company. It is really appreciated by your customers. Keep up the good work and keep demanding non-GMO products and the suppliers will produce!!

  2. Why aren’t your product containers labeled organic, or non -gmo
    Also do you have the coconut chicken with no added sugar?

    • All of our Organic products are labeled Organic and no GMO’s are permitted as per the Organic standards, and no, we only have one type of coconut tenders.

  3. Mr. Schecler,
    My name is Daniel Masters. I am the owner of Hiland Naturals, a NON-GMO Project Verified feed company. We have milling capabilities in Lebanon, Pa. at Triple M Farms. Glenn Musser, the owner there has been trying to get an appointment with you for he and I to come to your office and show you what we can do. I believe this could be a great opportunity for your company as well as us to supply you folks with a third party verified feed. I will be in Pa. on Monday August 5 thru Wednesday Aug. 7. If Mr. Musser and I could see you for an hour or so on Monday or Tuesday that would be great. Thanks for your time and consideration. Daniel Masters 330-377-4016
