Selection of organic foodOnce organic produce leaves the farm, it may pass through several stages before it reaches your plate. But each of these stages will involve the same degree of care, professionalism and adherence to organic regulations as is required by organic farmers, in order to ensure the end product is wholly authentic and worthy of your consumption.


Processors

Organic processors and, by extension, marketers and food distributors, will have the same goals as organic farmers – namely the provision of fresh and authentic processed food designed to respect nature and its systems.

Important principles for the processing of organic products include the:

    * Strict restriction of which additives and processing aids can be used
    * Strict restriction of chemically synthesised inputs
    * Prohibition of the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs)

Requirements

Like farmers, the processing sector must also follow certain legal requirements if its products are to carry the organic logos and labelling of the EU or different EU Member States. In the new EU organic farming Regulation, these include:

    * Producing goods mainly from ingredients of organic agricultural origin
    * Using only non-organic agricultural ingredients authorised by the Commission or EU Member States
    * Using only a very limited number of additives or processing aids, which are authorised, under certain conditions, by the Commission
    * Prohibiting artificial flavourings and colorants
    * Ensuring organic and non-organic food ingredients are stored, handled and processed separately at all times

Inspection

On top of these requirements, processors in the EU organic sector are subject to inspections at least once a year to ensure they abide by their legal requirements. Additional inspections may also be carried out if necessary.

Range

While organic farming seeks to keep agriculture in touch with its traditional roots and works in harmony with nature, organic processing reflects a myriad of tastes and the culinary preferences of modern consumers.

So, along with the range of highly delicious fruits, vegetables and meats, modern organic products can, and do, include:

    * Baby food
    * Wine made from organic grapes
    * Beer
    * Yoghurt
    * Cakes
    * Pastries
    * Bread
    * Breakfast cereals
    * Biscuits
    * Cold meats
    * Fruit juices
    * Tinned fruits and vegetables
    * Prepared meals
    * Coffee
    * Tea

In fact, because organic farmers tend to select lesser-known plant and livestock varieties with greater resistance to pests and diseases and better adaptability to local and seasonal conditions, the organic processing sector arguably has an even larger range of products at its disposal.
