Every food in our stores is screened against criteria based on feedback from shoppers like you and evaluated by our team of Quality Standards experts. We don’t allow harmful artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, sweeteners, products of nanotechnology or synthetic biology, or hundreds of other ingredients found in foods at other markets. We have specific standards to avoid labor abuses in the seafood, chocolate, banana, and coffee industries where human trafficking and slavery are known to exist. New items with ingredients that are high-risk for being genetically engineered (GE) must be organic or Non-GMO Project Verified. If a company cannot provide confirmation, PCC will not carry the product. See our list of acceptable and unacceptable ingredients for food.
