Staying ahead of the holiday season, McCormick & Company, Inc. is introducing a new non-GMO labeled Vanilla Extract and says it plans to have all products be 80 percent organic and free of genetically modified organisms by 2016.

While many of the company’s products are currently non-GMO, McCormick says it will begin to label these products to help educate consumers and be transparent with its products.

 "Our consumers are increasingly interested in quality flavors with pure ingredients in their food," said Lawrence Kurzius, McCormick president and COO.  "Our effort to increase our Organic and Non-GMO offerings proves that we are listening to consumers and are committed to continuing to evolve."
