Though organic farming is a relatively recent phenomenon in Canada, the industry is currently booming. But did you know that only products that have received organic certification are allowed to use the word “organic” on their packaging? Canada Organic certification is issued only to products with over 95% organic ingredients.

Organic certification means that the certified product complies with strict organic production standards that prohibit any use of synthetic fertilizer or pesticides. Organic ingredients are grown in a way that helps to maintain soil fertility and promote biodiversity. It’s one way of contributing to the goal of increasing biodiversity and potentially improving the health of our planet.

Plus, farmers and manufacturers care deeply about the quality of their organic products. That can only be a good thing when it comes to variety, freshness and vitamin and mineral content!

Foods like organic bread help you to avoid exposure to pesticides while supporting a healthier approach to farming and a healthier community. So look for the Canada Organic logo on your next trip to the grocery store.
