Organic farmers and producers do not claim that their products will taste better than others, only that they will have an authentic taste, because they will have been produced in a natural way.
What is Organic Farming?
Organic Farming from Italy is an agricultural system that seeks to provide the consumer with fresh, tasty and authentic food while respecting natural life-cycle systems.
It follows very strict limits on chemical synthetic pesticide and synthetic fertiliser use, livestock antibiotics, food additives and processing aids and other inputs.
It is absolutely prohibited any use of genetically modified organisms.
Organic Farming also chooses plant and animal species that are resistant to diseases and adapted to local conditions. The selection job about these species has been conducted already by our ancestors throughout the ages. The double advantage of this practice is that we keep alive the local peculiarities and don’t need to intervene to adapt something which will never naturally adapt to some local conditions.
The good news is that the consumption of organic products keeps growing in many countries which means that more and more people understand the extra-value of authentic food.
Keep looking for the EU Organic logo on the products and you will be on the right track to differentiate what is only supposed to be organic from what is organic certified!
Organic Farming in Europe
The current EU organic legislation sets out rules for plant and animal production and for the processing of food and feed to be labelled as organic. Compliance with the EU organic legislation is required for all products carrying the EU organic logo.
The origin of the farmed ingredients has to be indicated together with the logo, and the code number of the certification body has to accompany the label.
Every farmer, processor and importer in the Organic Farming from Italy supply chain is inspected at least once a year to ensure their compliance with the regulation.
This process is supervised by each EU Member State, which is responsible for establishing an inspection system with competent authorities to ensure adherence to the obligations established in the organic Regulation.
Organic food is produced to the same food safe quality standards as other foods and must comply with EU General Food law.
