CERTIFIED ORGANIC AGRICULTURE
What does cultivate organically mean?
In the Bio no chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used, whose residues end up on our boards. When pesticides are used, in fact, only 1 per thousand of the product actually acts on harmful insects, while the remaining 999 per thousand contaminates the whole environment. Traces of these pesticides are also found on the final product we consume
Why do organic products have a higher price than conventional products?
The organic farming uses strict processes that focus on respect for the natural cycle of life. We do not have the chemical tools (pesticides / fertilizers), typical of conventional agriculture, which speed up and simplify the work necessary for the farmer. The direct consequences of all this are:
- It takes more time to produce organic products
- More human resources are required for the same results
- The production yields are lower
The production costs are much higher, this is why.
