Organic

Organically grown foods are becoming more popular as people worry more about the health and the safety of the food they eat.  Organic foods are foods that are produced using methods that do not involve modern synthetic inputs such as synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers.  They are considered to be safe since producers are required to obtain special certification in order to market food as organic.  To be certified as organic, food products need to come from farms and processing plants that are certified as organic. This means that they are inspected by certified government officials to ensure that organic farms are up to USDA organic standards.  The inspectors make sure that only organic methods are used and that the environment is not contaminated with pesticides, synthetic fertilizers or other non-organic compounds.

Organic farming is not only better for the animals, it is better for the environment. Organic farms are much more compatible with wildlife and land conservation programs.  Simply by using fewer pesticides, organic farms cause far less pollution to lakes and rivers, enhance soil quality, and are safer for farm workers as well as wild animals and plants.  Organic farms may also be more energy-efficient than "factory farms," since their practices require fewer manufactured fertilizers, fungicides, insecticides and other chemical and petroleum-based compounds.

There is a great variety of organic products: fruit, vegetables, pulses, oil, wine, meat, dairy products, organic baby food, sweets, coffee, nuts, snacks, pasta and more.
