We Love Organic September!

What is Organic Food?

Organic is a system of farming and food production. Organic farmers aim to produce high-quality food, using methods that benefit our whole food system, from people to planet, plant health to animal welfare.

No other defined system of farming and food production comes close to delivering so many benefits for wildlife, society and the natural world. Organic farmers work to a strict set of standards, which must legally comply with strict EU regulation, to ensure that their farms sustain the health of:

  • Soils,
  • Ecosystems
  • Animals
  • People

These standards are built on the key principles of organic agriculture:

  • Health
  • Ecology
  • Care
  • Fairness

Certification is legally required to grow, process or market organic products. This means when you see the Organic symbol, you can trust that the food and drink you buy has been made in a way that is better for people, animals and wildlife, and respects the natural environment.


What is Organic September?

Organic September is a month-long campaign which aims to raise awareness of Organic products, and the brands, producers and farmers who bring them to us in the UK. Foods labelled as organic must meet strict regulations on how they have been grown and produced.

Why Choose Organic?

The way we farm and eat can make a world of difference. Organic is an 'agroecological' farming system that offers many benefits.

  1. It's better for our planet 
  2. It has higher animal welfare standards
  3. It's better for wildlife
  4. It's better for people

We have a great range of organic products throughout our website, have a look to see what changes you can make to support Organic September!
