Michigan non-GMO soy oil available at Meijer

Zoye OilI just found Zoye soy oil at Meijer. It is “identity-preserved,” which guarantees the non-GMO soybeans are not mixed with GMO soy at any point during processing.  The company uses a lot of methane for energy (landfill gas) and their office is LEED certified.  It is grown and produced in Michigan (in the Thumb region), making it pretty much the only commercially available, certified local, non-GMO cooking oil available here.  I am pretty sure it’s the same oil as the one I reported on in 2008 with a sexy new label – but the good part is, you no longer have to drive to Frankemuth to get it.

It’s $5/liter and there’s a $1 coupon on their web site. I don’t get any kind of perqs for blogging about this product – just thought you should know about it.
