Why Eat Organic?

  • Organic produce has more nutrients and antioxidants than conventionally grown produce.
  • One of the most sustainable food and agriculture practices for the economy, society and environment.
  • Major contributors to environmental issues stem from food consumption and production; eating organic is one way to help this issue.

What does it mean for a product to be organic?

The term “organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. In the U.S., organic crops must be grown without the use of synthetic herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, or bioengineered genes (GMOs). Organic foods are usually fresher, friendlier to the environment, and more nutrient-rich.
