Now Certified Organic
Your favorites are now organic! We are so excited that we now offer two USDA Certified Organic products — our Organic Mild Vinegar marinated beets and our Organic Freshly Cooked beets. Providing beets of the highest quality is of utmost importance to us and we’re thrilled that we’ve now taken these products a step further to ensure that our customers are getting the absolute best in beets.
What does it mean to be USDA Certified Organic? Well, the USDA National Organic Program defines organic as the following:
Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled “organic,” a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.
Simply put, you’re getting beets that were grown and taste the way nature intended, and without negatively impacting the environment! Our goal is for all of our products to be USDA Certified Organic in the future!
