QUALITY YOU CAN TASTE.
At Marlo’s Bakeshop, we take great pride in sourcing the highest-quality ingredients to use in our all-natural cookies. We have an uncompromising commitment (some would say it’s an obsession) to using ingredients that are GMO-free and that we can pronounce. We want to feel good about eating our own non-GMO snacks and sharing them with you, your family, and your friends.
Ingredient transparency is important to Marlo’s Bakeshop, so if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Click the images below to discover some of the wonderful, local producers who supply us with the ingredients we use to create “The Best Cookies on the Market!”
What Does It Mean When We Say We Make GMO-Free Cookies?
A genetically modified organism (GMO) is a plant or animal whose genetic makeup has been changed by a scientific process called gene splicing. Many commodity crops, such as corn and soy, are genetically modified and may be used in packaged food products. By some estimates, up to 80% of all processed foods in the U.S. contain GMOs.
There’s currently no government agency that tests food products that are labeled as “non-GMO,” but the not-for-profit organization Non-GMO Project independently verifies the products of brands that claim to be GMO-free.
All Marlo’s Bakeshop snacks have been verified as GMO-free by the Non-GMO Project. We’re committed to keeping every product all-natural, from our Tahini Tea Cookies to our Original Soft-Baked Biscotti.
Why Do We Work with Local Suppliers?
Our all-natural cookies contain ingredients from great local producers like Sunridge Farms, Sierra Madre Honey and Guittard Chocolate Company. As a family-owned, San Francisco-based business, we work with local food suppliers whenever possible. There are a few reasons we do this:
- It allows us to support our fellow local businesses.
- Because our ingredients don’t have to travel far to get to us, it helps us minimize our environmental impact.
- It allows us to maintain the quality of our ingredients (which is a pretty big deal to us).
