Jessica Gigot, Ph.D. and Dean Luce raise Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World…
BaBa Foods Co. LLC is a Seattle based artisan food manufacturer that produces Certified Non-GMO by A Greener World (AGW) tomato chutney. BaBa’s unique chutney family recipe has been passed down for multiple generations, and is now produced for the retail market and made with fresh, Certified Non-GMO ingredients from the Pacific Northwest.
Owner of BaBa Foods Co., Jasdeep Saran, started the company after a family trip to India where his mother made the tomato chutney to eat as a relish. Jasdeep fell in love with the wonderful taste, and after asking his mother more about the recipe, he realized that this tomato chutney is a healthy and natural food that can be used as a substitute for highly processed foods available back home in the US. Now the same recipe is used to produce BaBa’s Tomato Chutney, made from all Certified Non-GMO by AGW ingredients in Seattle.
BaBa’s Foods Co. is the world’s first business producing tomato chutney that is Certified Non-GMO by AGW. This is the only certification and logo in the U.S. and Canada that guarantees food production without the use of genetically modified ingredients. Shoppers seek out non-GMO products for a variety of reasons, including environmental sustainability, food sovereignty, health and transparency, and BaBa’s Food Co. is committed to providing their customers the assurance of the absence of GMOs in their products.
BaBa’s Foods Co. owner Jasdeep Saran says, “Through the industrialization of agriculture, crops were modified to grow faster and resist the pesticides that would kill off bugs and weeds. Because of this, we now find ourselves needing certifications to prove the absence of genetically modified ingredients in a food product. In recent history, there have been so many negative modifications to food production, so it was our goal at BaBa’s Food Co. to present a product from before that time. A product with basic, fresh, unaltered ingredients. This is why our Non-GMO by AGW certification is so important to us. Other methods of food production are faster and other ingredients are cheaper, but that’s not the point. This certification on our product is an assurance to our customers, and it makes BaBa’s Tomato Chutney unique, wholesome and healthy.”
The company name, BaBa Foods Co., has ties to Jasdeep’s family as well – his father and siblings used to call their grandfather, “Baba”, and the word baba shows a sign of respect in the Punjabi culture, which traces back to Northern India. While operating BaBa’s Food Co., Jasdeep Saran also remains a current service member of the United States Air Force Reserve and a commercial airline pilot. He is proud that BaBa Foods Co. LLC is also 100% minority owned.
