Organic fruit and vegetables
What do you know about organic fruit and vegetables? Though organic products are gaining in popularity and are presented in separate sections in most of our stores, it’s sometimes difficult to differentiate them from their non-organic counterparts. Learn what makes them special and find out about official certification organizations.

Organically-grown fruit and vegetables

  • No chemical pesticides or weed killers. Mainly mechanical or thermal weeding techniques. Biological control used to protect crops.
  • No contact with synthetic fertilizers or sewage sludge. Soil is reinforced using proven agricultural methods like crop rotation, application of natural manure, and spreading composted organic material.
  • No seeds originating from GMOs used. Only original seeds used.
