Silk Soymilk launches traceability site
October 15, 2010
BROOMFIELD, COLO. — Silk Soymilk has launched a new web site that allows consumers to trace the origin of soybeans in each carton.
“Silk continues to broaden our commitment to transparency when it comes to how our products are made and where our ingredients come from,” said Craig Shiesley, vice-president. “No other soymilk maker shares more information with consumers about how their soybeans are grown and soymilk is made to create a complete crop-to-carton story. Our commitment to informing and empowering consumers is one reason why Silk remains the leading soymilk brand.”
Consumers may go to the site, www.silksoymilk.com/traceit, enter the manufacturing code and expiration date on the carton and find out where in the United States the soybeans used in the milk were grown. The site also has information about the soymilk production process and consumers may learn more about the steps the company takes to make sure its soybeans do not contain bioengineered organisms.
