Boulart Inc., Toronto, has acquired Non-GMO Project Verified status for its premium breads. According to the company, it is one of the first industrial artisan bakeries to acquire such a designation for a robust range of products.

Boulart’s bakery facilities are also Safe Quality Food (SQF) certified and employ traceability systems and controls. A fully-automated process in 100 percent controlled preparation and production environments lets the company combine high-velocity production with high-quality output. And since label transparency is a core value of the brand, the company uses no preservatives, additives or added sugar in its breads.

“Boulart is committed to constantly changing the game so the consumer never has to settle,” says company founder Michel Saillant. “From day one, my vision for Boulart has been about challenging the status quo and bringing authentic artisan bread to the mainstream market without compromise. It’s never been about conforming to industry standards—it’s been about setting new ones.”
