Organic Food Processing is where organic raw materials are processed into food and drink.
The Organics Standards for Food Processing protect the food constituents so that organic ingredients are used, and encourage the avoidance of unnecessary processing.
Organic labelling offers consumers confidence that their goods are produced under controlled organic standards.
A product cannot be sold as organic without organic certification covering every step of the supply chain - so there is full traceability and authenticity behind the organic label
Organic food chains are often much shorter so consumers can have a close connection with the production of the food they are eating
