Organic

Organic products are produced using methods of organic farming - with limited synthetic inputs such as synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers where organic farming is a process controlled and certified by authorities starting from production till consumption.

In other words, organic agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects. Organic Agriculture combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved - IFOAM -
