What is Organic Food?

In the context of the food industry, ‘organic’ refers to the method in which food is grown and processed. Organic farmers do not use chemicals (pesticides, fungicides or fertilisers) in an environmentally harmful manner. Organic farmers work with nature to build and replenish the nutrients in the soil through crop rotation, composting and cultivation. Organic growing methods are earth friendly, weeds and pests are controlled using environmentally sound practices which sustain the health of our planet.

These processes help maintain the health of the food and the environment in which it is produced, and ultimately our own health. Growing food organically reduces toxicity in the soil, air, water and in our bodies. It is for these reasons that organic food tastes better, and is better for you and your community.
