    Foods produced here in the US that are approved to be sold in Europe. The ones I like are made at Ohio Pet Foods, like Dr. Tim's. There are others at made at Ohio Pet that are fine too, Annamaet, Dave's, Regal, to name a few.

    Midwestern Pet Foods is EU Cert too, covering Earthborn and Pro Pac but not Sportmix.

    Is EU Cert perfect, no, does it replace ethics, no, does it guaranty quality manufacturing, no, but it is a very good way to judge the quality of what goes in the food.

    Victor is not, but I would have no trouble feeding that.

    Thank you for your interest in Earthborn Holistic Natural Food for Pets. The main ingredients of concern for GMO are corn and soy. Since our Earthborn products do to contain corn or soy, generally speaking there are little GMO issues with this product line. We don't make the claim that our products are GMO free because we do not grow our ow ingredients and cannot fully control the process. Cross contamination exists on farms, at elevators, etc and to say that traces of it do not exist cold be misleading.

    We also do not specify what type of corn *are fed to the animals used for meat sources. It would be nearly impossible to control this aspect of the food.
