Organic 101

Organic refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. It includes a system of production, processing, distribution and sales that assures consumers that the products maintain the organic integrity that begins on the farm. And, because federal production and processing standards are in place, these standards provide verification and traceability from the farm to the consumer.

Unlike other eco-labels, only ORGANIC guarantees:

  • NO toxic and synthetic pesticides or fertilizers
  • NO GMO ingredients 
  • NO antibiotics or synthetic growth hormones
  • NO artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives
  • NO sewage sludge or irradiation
