Venus Wafers recently announced the launch of ‘Non-GMO Project Verified’ water crackers under its brand, The Original Mariner Biscuit Company. The Mariner Water Crackers have also been verified “Vegan” by the Vegan Action/Vegan Awareness Foundation.
Mariner Crackers were previously not vegan because bone char was used to remove the color from sugar.
“We care deeply about this issue and giving our customers the highest quality ingredients for their health and enjoyment. We believe people have the right to know what they are eating,” said Venus Wafers President Michael Thompson. “The re-launch of our Original Mariner Biscuit Company brand is the first step in gaining Non-GMO Project verification for the Venus Wafers’ family of brands. We are committed to being a completely Non-GMO commercial bakery.”
Five varieties will be available: Original Water Cracker, Basil and Roasted Pepper, Cracked Peppercorn, Toasted Sesame Seed, Olive Oil and Sea Salt. Each 4-ounce box has a SRP of $3.29.
