SAN FRANCISCO — ALO Drink, the #1 ready-to-drink aloe vera beverage in the U.S. grocery channel, has announced its entire line of aloe vera beverages are now Non-GMO Project Verified. This verification makes ALO Drink the first in its category to receive the respected verification. Non-GMO Project verification means that all 17 of ALO Drink varieties, which include ALO Original, ALO Light™, and COCO Exposed®, have passed a rigorous, independent verification process by the Non-GMO Project, meeting the standard for GMO avoidance.
“We are excited and extremely proud to finally have this verification,” says President of ALO Drink, Henry Chen. “Our goal as a company is to provide a refreshment that makes ALO drinkers feel good from the inside out, and achieving this verification shows that we are committed to doing just that.”
All ALO Drink varieties start with the natural benefits of real aloe vera, which is hand picked from an organic aloe vera farm and hand filleted, ensuring goodness that is straight from the leaf, never from powder. Flavors are crafted from a mix of real fruits, vegetables and other positive ingredients. It’s better refreshment, naturally.
