Why take the opportunity for a healthy future?
The importance of organic production is reflected in obtaining safe food and preserving the environment and plant communities. It contributes to preserving fertile soil, which is necessary for the proper functioning of ecosystems because it purifies water, provides food, preserves genetic resources, and represents the primary living space for almost all terrestrial living beings.
In the previous ten years, 37 healthy ideas were awarded within the ORGANIC competition, thus helping 37 farms to contribute to a healthier future for all of us with their organic production and food processing.
