Organic, its ins and outs

Why we believe in organic

Organic food is grown with the utmost regard for the environment, animal welfare, food safety and quality. The organic growing process also enhances biodiversity, contributes to soil fertility, reduces the carbon footprint and helps to lower the risk of antibiotic-resistant organisms.

To carry the label ‘organic’, a product must contain at least  95% organic ingredients. Additionally, the methods whereby organic ingredients and products are farmed, grown and processed must adhere to stringent criteria such as a demonstrable lack of genetically modified organisms (GMO) and strict rules concerning pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones and the welfare of animals.

Nowadays, IFOAM is the worldwide umbrella organisation for the organic movement. And also many other organisations are committed to organic.
