Blackberries are black, edible fruits made of many small drupes, or tiny fruits that each contain one seed. The Marion blackberry, or marionberry, is one of the most common varieties, and is a cross between the Chehalem and Olallie blackberries.
The J.M. Smucker Company is committed to complying with federal GMO labeling regulations, specifically the Bioengineered Foods Disclosure Act. These regulations will require labeling of foods that contain bioengineered (GMO) ingredients. Disclosure must be through text, a symbol, or a scannable code, such as a SmartLabel™ QR code. Once the government has fully developed the language and guidelines for labeling, Smucker will implement these requirements across all products with genetically modified ingredients.
