In April 2021, Ethical Consumer sent Bentley Organics a questionnaire, requesting information about the company’s policies and practices. No response was received. On 3rd May 2021 Ethical Consumer therefore searched the company’s website for publicly available information.
The ‘About us’ section of the website stated that "we stand by two key philosophies; firstly that all products are Soil Association certified as a guarantee to our consumers of their organic integrity. And secondly that we are ‘Of the Earth, not costing the Earth’, as an integrated manufacturer and supplier we are able to offer our customers a better value product – we believe organic products should be reasonably, not premium, priced".
Soil Association certification meant that the company's products were GMO free. It was therefore considered to have a positive policy addressing GMO ingredients.
