What is Organic?

An Idaho-certified organic food product has been produced without the use of synthetically compounded fertilizers, pesticides, or growth regulators for a least 36 months prior to harvest. Products are marketed using the term ‘organic’ (or as a derivative) in their labeling or advertising. Organics are processed, packaged, transported, and stored to retain maximum nutritional value, without artificial preservatives, colorings, additives, irradiation, or synthetic pesticides. The organic production system emphasizes sustainability and limited natural inputs, relying heavily on such things as crop rotation and animal manure to promote soil health and fertility.
