Organic foods are those that have been produced according to organic farming and processing standards. Organic farms do not use man-made fertilisers, pesticides and insecticides. Soil rotation, composting, planting complementary plants together enhance the growth of plants and result in food that is higher in vitamins and minerals and superior in taste.
Genetic engineering is not allowed in organic farming. Organic foods are processed with minimum processing and only a limited number of natural processing aids are approved.
