Organic is the way to produce food in harmony with nature. It combines best environmental practices, high standards of animal welfare and natural ingredients and manufacturing methods are encouraged.

The term ’organic’ is defined and known internationally. The organic market and consumer interest in organic products is on the rise all over the world, with a well-established standing in Europe. The international trends can also be seen in Finland, reinforcing the demand for organic products.
