ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, U.S. — Whole Harvest, a subsidiary of Bunge North America, will expand its non-bioengineered/non-GMO oil capabilities by adding facilities in Modesto, California, U.S., and Oakville, Ontario, Canada. The two facilities will allow Whole Harvest to offer more soybean and canola oils verified by the Non-GMO Project to food service operators in the United States and Canada.

Whole Harvest already offers Non-GMO Project verified oils produced at its Warsaw, North Carolina, U.S., facility.

“Restaurants adding non-GMO and organic menu offerings will continue to be a key driver of growth in U.S. food service,” said Mark Stavro, senior director of marketing for St. Louis-based Bunge North America, the North American operating arm of Bunge Ltd. “Adding more facilities capable of producing non-GMO verified products enables us to leverage our powerful supply chain to support food service operations focused on growth through this trend.”

All Whole Harvest oils are expeller-pressed. The company also offers soybean oil certified organic through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Program. By law, organic oil must be non-bioengineered/non-GMO.
