Product & produce FAQs

What is organic food?

Organic food or organically-grown produce is food that has been grown, harvested and processed without the use of pesticides and synthetic chemicals.

What's the difference between organic and ACO organic certified?

Certified organic products have gone through a process of certification by a third party to guarantee the integrity and purity of the product. Australian Certified Organic (ACO) is the largest certifier for organic and biodynamic produce.

Is organic food better for you than non-organic food?

It's difficult to get a clear-cut answer on the scientific benefits of buying organic, primarily because the nutritional value and qualities of fresh products varies widely, regardless of if the produce has been organically or conventionally farmed.

Colloquially and through our experience, we find the taste of non-organic food doesn't even compare to their slow-grown, high-quality organic counterparts. If you're interested in this subject, we've done the hard yards in this blog piece.
