Being organic is a way of life

Organic, eco and natural - words that are increasingly used and interpreted; in fact, everything begins with a certain mindset. It’s a lifestyle where activities are in harmony with the environment, and that communication with nature is honest.

The term organic can be attributed to anything - food, agriculture, economy, culture, development, science, manufacturing or government. This is the mindset that surrounds us, and can extend to every area of life.

For example, organic animal husbandry pays great attention to animal welfare, organic products are made without genetically modified organisms and there are no harmful residues of synthetic plant protection products in organic food.

Organic and natural products can be recognized by the label

Several labelling systems have been set up in Estonia and Europe to simplify choices. The easiest way to identify an organic product is by the use of the organic logo of the European Union, since its use is compulsory.

In addition, the labels are further divided into organic and eco-labels. The organic product is usually edible and of agricultural origin. Eco-products are generally manufactured goods, and their raw materials may come from different sources.
