WAWA, Pa. -- Wawa has eliminated milk that containing artificial growth hormones from its 570-unit chain of convenience stores, in response to customers' growing interest in natural products, the company told the Baltimore Business Journal.
As a result, Wawa will now only purchase raw milk from farmers who will pledge and sign legal affidavits stating they will not use artificial growth hormones on their cows, according to the report.
In addition, customers will see the "farmers' pledge" on a seal on labels of all Wawa dairy products, the report stated.
Wawa executives told the Journal the move was a response to customers' growing interest in natural products, along with a greater commitment to overall health and wellness, the Baltimore Business Journal stated.
