Dancing Deer Baking Company becomes first to produce Non-GMO Verified cookies using Rumiano Non-GMO Butter
Dancing Deer Baking Company began in 1994. The three founders have since moved on, but many of their founding principles still remain the same. Dancing Deer started as a food-service bakery, selling mostly to cafes and restaurants with intentions of complementing the growing gourmet coffee market. The company has boomed with the online shop supplying personal and gift markets, gaining national recognition for their quality, all-natural cookies, cakes and other pastries.
Dancing Deer Baking Company has been innovating in the baked goods industry since it's creation, and they are at it again. Rumiano Cheese Company has partnered with the Dancing Deer Baking Company to help them bring the first Non-GMO Verified cookie to the market! Soon, you'll be able to find the Non-GMO Verified "Thin & Crispy Non-GMO Cookies" in local grocery, natural food, and specialty stores nationwide, using Rumiano Cheese Organic Non-GMO butter. This is the first baking company to use our butter, and we are super excited to be a part of their five new retail varieties: Chocolate Chip with Sea Salt, Dark Chocolate Macadamia, Chocolate Almond Toffee, Ginger Spice and Sweet Lemon.
We asked Frank Carpenito, Dancing Deer's President and COO, about the new Non-GMO line and their position on the Non-GMO movement as a whole;
"We are very excited to be the first national company to market with a Non-GMO cookie line. We have always stood for innovation, sustainability and quality, and introducing this new line of products that are reflective of all three of these points is consistent with our mission, and also meets a growing consumer need. Long-term, it is our intent to evolve as many of our products (or all of them) to Non-GMO as possible... Importantly we are highly supportive of the Non-GMO movement, and intend, as we are doing, to be a leader within it."
We are excited to be a part of this new line of cookies, and hope the future brings more Non-GMO products to the Dancing Deer line.
