Grain terminal in North Dakota 100% dedicated to non-GMO harvests

Non-GMO crops

(NaturalNews) In a move that further reinforces the wave of health-consciousness that's sweeping the nation, a newly-acquired North Dakota grain terminal has its sights set on creating and maintaining a fully non-GMO facility.

Captain Drake, LLC's million-bushel grain terminal, is addressing the growing demand for all things non-GMO, and as such, is dedicated to helping its clients enjoy their non-GMO commodities. The company also maintains that it's the only U.S. supplier of citric acid which is not derived from GM corn, but instead from sugar cane.(1)

"By providing growers and end-users this key facility, Captain Drake will consolidate and streamline the sourcing of non-GMO grain in the Red River Valley," says Mark Anderson, president of Captain Drake. "We will be able to obtain the best non-GMO commodities from three regions: North Dakota, Minnesota, and Manitoba, Canada."(1)

Non-GMO market trend a very 'real concern'

Their website also highlights the public's surge in wanting access to healthier options, stating that they're poised to get on board with the non-GMO "market trend." Doing so will help their clients "navigate this new and real concern ..." when it comes to their businesses.(2)

Additionally, their site states the following:

"This human manipulation of our food supply has not yet been proven safe and has been linked to many health concerns. Consumers are demanding to know what is in their food and it appears that food and beverage companies will soon have to answer with GMO or Non-GMO on their packaging. ...

"We pride ourselves on partnering with companies who are environmentally and socially responsible through every phase of the growing and manufacturing process. Captain Drake is rapidly expanding our product offerings to meet the demand for NON GMO ingredients."(2,3)

Indeed, the "human manipulation" of the food supply is a very real concern, and a reason Captain Drake's move should be applauded.

Nothing good comes from GM crops

For example, one only has to utter the word, "GMO" to have thoughts of Monsanto's crop and health-harming ways enter people's minds. Time and again, their destructive glyphosate-using and altered seed-developing habits have been frowned upon by health-conscious folks who know better than to say that toxic chemicals are good for their bodies. Still, the agro-chemical giant maintains that grain and grass crops can be developed in ways that can withstand glyphosate spraying, while also bypassing environmental and health risks. We know better; the only win-win when it comes to GM crops is the me-myself-and-I attitude that prevails at such Monsanto-esque corporations.(4)

GM crops are bad, plain and simple.

Even China once declared their refusal to accept GMO grain imports from the U.S., citing concerns over GMO strains not approved in their country.(5)

Numerous corporations taking steps to address health-conscious wave that's sweeping nation

The rise in addressing the GMO issue is also evident in the actions being taken by several corporations. Almost in droves, they're tackling the problem, remaining steadfast in their desire to lead the non-GMO charge.

McCormick spices, for example, announced that the majority of their spices will be GMO-free and organic by the end of 2016. And even Whole Foods, the subject of some eyebrow-raising actions in the past, has GMO-free efforts in the works. In fact, they've declared 2018 as the year that all of their products in the U.S. and Canada will carry proper GMO labeling.(6,7)

The list goes on.

From Panera Bread and Subway, to Chipotle and numerous other places, the desire to remove unhealthy food ingredients and provide customers with healthier options is evident. Hopefully we'll see the health-conscious wave continue, so everywhere we turn – from restaurants and stores, to grain terminals and other industries – the public's good health is always kept front-and-center.
