You will probably have noticed that we have been selling a lot more organic fruit and veg of late.
We’ve always strived to operate within a set of ethical and social guidelines and support organic growing as part of our commitment to the healthy consumption fair/sustainable trade of fruit and veg.
For us there are so many advantages in organic.
Organic farmers build soil fertility without petrochemicals such as pesticides and herbicides.
Organic growing is based on nature being able to flourish through pollination and natural pest control from beneficial insects, birds and other wildlife.
There is huge evidence of a clear link between healthy soil, wholesome food and good human health. The saying goes, “feed the soil not the plant!”
Organic growing is less energy-intensive and doesn’t rely on artificial fertilisers, biocides and fossil fuels for production and transport.
Also, genetically modified crops are banned under organic standards.
So here’s to ‘organic’ and a happy Organic September, enjoy with love from nature.
