If you pay close attention to the foods you eat and serve your family and friends, you’re not alone. Today’s grocery shoppers are highly selective about the products they buy and seek transparency in foods, with many looking for certified-organic products and avoiding items with added hormones and certain additives.1
Publix offers a variety of convenient solutions to help you make informed decisions about the products you choose and the foods you eat.
GreenWise: Products from a Shared Belief in Good
Publix developed the GreenWise line of products to address our customers’ desires. When you see a GreenWise product at Publix, you can rest assured it meets at least one of the following requirements:
- USDA Organic
- Made with at least 70% organic ingredients
- Made without artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors; may contain colors from natural sources
- Raised without antibiotics or added hormones; federal regulations prohibit the use of added hormones in poultry and pork; all GreenWise meats are fed a 100% vegetarian diet
- Non-food products that make an environmental claim on the package
We’ve even developed a list of more than 100 ingredients you won’t find in our GreenWise foods and beverages. We review and update it annually to ensure that it reflects both our strict standards and feedback from our customers.
In addition to avoiding certain ingredients, GreenWise products use only:
- added colors from natural sources
- flours that are unbleached and unbromated
- expeller-pressed oils
- dairy products from animals that have not received rbST2
