Organic foods have become very popular in recent years and at Olive Health Foods we have a large selection of fresh organic produce. The term “organic” refers to the way the agricultural or food products are grown and processed. Specific requirements must be met and maintained in order for products to be labeled as “organic.”
Organic crops must be grown in safe soil, have no modifications, and must remain separate from conventional products. Farmers are not allowed to use synthetic pesticides, bioengineered genes (GMOs), petroleum-based fertilizers, and sewage sludge-based fertilizers.
Organic livestock must have access to the outdoors and be given organic feed. They may not be given antibiotics, growth hormones, or any animal-by-products. Our staff members are highly trained so they can offer you the very best assistance in making your organic foods selections. So drop in and see us at 540 Olive St Albury or call us on (02) 6021 5626 for more details.
