The way nature
So what is organic? Organic food and ingredients are grown and produced naturally without harmful chemicals.
Organic food is grown in balanced, living soils, and organic farmers are committed to producing nutritious food without harmful intervention. It takes at least three years for a farm to become certified organic. Organic foods are produced the way nature intended, supporting natural health in the world that we live in.
Studies have shown organic foods to have superior antioxidant, vitamin, mineral and nutrient content.
No nasty chemicals and grown in healthy soils, it’s not surprising there is growing evidence that organic food is better for us. You get all the goodness without harmful pesticides, antibiotics and additives. That’s great news for all of us; from the youngest members of our families to our eldest.
Growing food organically is a holistic way of production that considers the whole process.
For farmers, that includes the soil, livestock, waterways, workers and environment. Organic farmers use sustainable practices including crop rotation and composting to maintain soil productivity and promote nutrient-rich soil. Animals are treated to the highest welfare standards and rural workers and communities are treated fairly.
Organic & Non-Organic what’s The Difference?
The first thing you may notice, is that organic food often costs more than non-organic. That’s because you’re paying the true cost of growing real food. One of the major benefits of organic, is food that is healthier for you and your family. Organic food is said to have superior nutrients than non-organic alternatives.
