Orgran is GMO free

I have recently figured out that my kids react to GMO corn the same way they do gluten. This has lead me to cut out GMO's and contacting companies to find out what they use. I wanted to share the recent reply I received from Orgran. While I have not tried their products yet, I ordered several of them to try and I will let you know how they are.
Here is their reply.

Thank-you for your email and interest into the Orgran range of gluten free products.
All of Orgran products are GMO free. We used to have GMO free statement on all of Orgran products. However, due to the requirement on some of the countries that we exported our products to, we had to remove the GMO free statement from our packaging.

For your reference I have copied below some additional information regarding our range.

Currently we have over 80 gluten free lines ranging from the best tasting pasta available (Rice & Corn), pancake mixes, bread mixes, flour mixes, fruit bars, falafel mix, canned spaghetti, biscuits, snacks and more.

The entire range of Orgran products are:
Wheat free
Gluten free
Dairy/lactose and casein free
Yeast free
Egg free
Contain no animal derivatives

GMO free

ORGRAN products consist of a very comprehensive range of foods specifically developed for dietetic requirements such as coeliacs, allergies, diabetics, athletes and the health conscious consumer.

In accordance with the ORGRAN philosophy and stringent quality guidelines we do not use or store GM ingredients, artificial additives, food preservatives, stabilizers, flavour enhancers, dairy, animal derived ingredients or wheat.

As specialised producers we adhere to strictest international standards and in order to maintain purity status of our dietetic products we do not process wheat or gluten containing cereals or additive derivatives on our premises. 

I hope this is helpful, and please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like any additional information.

Thank-you again for your interest in Orgran
