Looking for the healthiest options at the supermarket or health food store? Organics are a great place to start. Organic food is grown naturally – without chemical pesticides, herbicides and genetic modification. It is grown, harvested, processed and shipped under strict government guidelines, including regular audits.
When you eat organic food, you avoid ingesting a number of nasty, toxic chemicals proven harmful to health in the long term. Equally important, numerous studies also point to the higher nutritional value of food that’s grown organically. And who can ignore the question of taste? We believe organic food simply tastes better – and we’re not the only ones, not by a long shot. A mushrooming portion of the population wholeheartedly agrees with us!
It’s good for Mother Earth!
Organic food production maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic pesticides and fertilizers that degrade soil over time. Eliminating these polluting chemicals helps conserve precious water resources and prevents drinking water sources from being contaminated.
When you choose organic, you help promote sustainable farming, a cleaner and safer environment, and safer drinking water in our communities. Just as important, you help ensure that fruit growers and their workers are paid fairly.
