Silk is manufactured by WhiteWave, which is owned by Groupe Danone.

There have been long-standing reports of Silk purchasing organic soybeans from international sources, including China. They have recently announced that they will no longer purchase soybeans from abroad, but would not participate in this project and are unwilling to share their sourcing information so there is no way to confirm this information.

Silk is also moving away from organics altogether, manufacturing more and more conventional products instead of organic. If you enjoy their products, we would encourage you to contact the company and ask them to participate in the Cornucopia research study and scorecard.
