Non-GMO Information

Ghirardelli is committed to quality.

Ghirardelli is committed to quality. Our exceptionally high standards begin with our sustainable sourcing practices, which include working directly with cocoa farmers and carefully selecting the superior ingredients that go into our recipes. We call this the "Ghirardelli Difference" the cocoa bean-to-finished product process in which we control every step for high quality, rich tasting chocolate.

Some consumers have expressed concerns about commonly used ingredients, such as those identified as being genetically modified. Addressing those concerns, we have committed to making our products non-GMO. It is our objective to make all Ghirardelli recipes non-GMO by 2018 and available in the market by 2019.

Today, many of our products are already non-GMO. The milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, dark chocolate, and white chocolate in our confections and baking products as well as our baking powders are all non-GMO. We are currently working on making all of our fillings, sauces, and non-chocolate ingredients non-GM as soon as practicable. Please see the list below which outlines each recipe's non-GMO status.
