What is Organic
Your food choices have a lasting effect on your family and shape their eating habits, but shopping can be challenging when we're all bombarded with food labels appearing in various sizes and forms on the packaging, in the ingredient list, or on stickers. The "Certified Organic" label can help you make informed decisions at the farmers' market or the supermarket. Feeding your family organic food reduces your risk of exposure to pesticides, antibiotics, and hormones, and promotes the development of long-lasting, good eating habits.
Certified organic foods are produced according to national standards set by the National Programme for Organic Production (NPOP). These standards were implemented in 2000 and continue to be interpreted and developed by on a regular basis. Organic standards address many factors: soil quality, animal raising, pest and weed control, and use of input materials. Materials approved for and prohibited from organic production can be found on the APEDA website (link)
The use of sewage sludge, bioengineering (GMOs), ionizing radiation, and most synthetic pesticides and fertilizers is prohibited from organic production. The land - certified organic produce is grown on soil that has been free of prohibited substances for three years prior to harvest to ensure that the crops will not be contaminated. Organic dairy products come from animals fed 100% organic feed and forage, given no antibiotics or growth hormones, and raised in conditions that follow their natural behaviors.. Focused on the use of renewable resources and conservation of soil and water, organic farmers enhance and sustain the environment for future generations.
But that's not all! National organic standards also include regulations for organic processed products, including prohibiting artificial preservatives, flavors, and dyes. NPOP standards include specific labeling rules for both produce and processed goods.
Producers certified by GreenCert have chosen to grow, process, and sell organic foods. We support organic producers and consumers by advocating for organic and providing information and resources on organic food and agriculture.
