Silk® has announced changes to its portfolio of products that reinforce its commitment to sourcing soybeans for all Silk products from North America. Silk Unsweetened will now be offered as an organic-only option, transitioning from its current offering of both natural and organic choices. Silk’s portfolio will include:
· Unsweetened – available in organic-only
· Original – available in organic and natural options
· Vanilla – available in organic and natural options
“We are proud to make a change that allows us to continue sourcing beans from North America,” said Craig Shiesley, Vice President for Silk. “At the same time, it’s exciting to continue offering organic options to consumers who want them.”
In January 2009, Silk expanded its offering of natural soymilk based on consumer demand for a more affordable line of soymilk made with domestically sourced beans. This change allowed Silk to continue offering soymilk options that meet a variety of consumer needs, while producing products that are 100% non-GMO and meet Silk’s robust quality standards.
As part of the company’s dedication to responsible sourcing, Silk will continue its relationship with Conservation International to further develop its Soybean Sourcing and Production Guidelines. Silk is also initiating a partnership with the Non-GMO Project, a third-party auditing program that reinforces and strengthens Silk’s robust GMO testing protocols.

Silk Soymilk was launched in 1996 and is the best-selling soymilk brand in the country. Not only do Silk products taste delicious, a cup of Silk soymilk contains as much calcium as a cup of milk and is loaded with soy protein, which when consumed as a part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.1 Silk was founded on a promise to make the world a healthier place. We began by bringing soymilk mainstream, allowing more people everywhere to enjoy soy’s wholesome, natural nutrition. We recently introduced almondmilk as the next step in our proud tradition of good health and great taste. For more information, visit http://www.silksoymilk.com or http://www.silkpurealmond.com.
