Whether to choose organic food vs. non-organic food is just one of the decisions you have make every time you go grocery shopping. Choosing organic food supports farmers and producers who believe in good health, quality foods and earth-friendly sustainable agricultural practices.
What does Organic Mean?
Organic food is produced using environmentally and animal friendly farming methods on organic farms. These methods are legally defined and any food sold as ‘organic’ must be strictly regulated.
Organic farming recognises the direct connection between our health and how the food we eat is produced. Organic products are grown in environmentally friendly ways, artificial fertilisers are banned and farmers develop fertile soil by rotating crops and using compost, manure and clover.
Organic animals enjoy the very highest welfare standards – they are truly free range and have plenty of space and access to fields.
