Quite simply because organic food is grown without the use of harmful chemicals. A healthy choice for you and your loved ones….and, something not always realized, for those who produce the food, who are exposed to these harmful chemicals during non organic farming and production. And, without question, healthier for our precious ecosystems being damaged in countless ways by the use of these harmful chemicals. Choosing to buy organic food for yourself and your family affects this whole chain, and supports a system that is beneficial rather than harmful at each link.
According to the USDA, US Department of Agriculture’s NOP Standards, National Organic Program: “Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations… Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation.
Kopali Organics’ products are certified organic. This means a Government-approved certifier has inspected each and every farm where the food is grown, as well as each and every producer and company that processes it, to make sure they are following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards.
USDA certification is an incredibly important step, however we are committed to going even beyond organic certification, to support the most sustainable agricultural practices possible.
