‘If you think organic,
you think Green Organics’

WE CHOOSE

Organic

Organic

Organic is all about health, ecology, honesty and care for humans, animals and the planet. Four aspects we fully identify with at Green Organics. Organic is the only form of food production that is built on ideals and is anchored in legal regulations and inspections. We grow in such a way that the food is nutritious, fair prices are applied and the soil remains healthy.

How great would it be if in 2030, we could abolish the label ‘organic’ around the world, because all potato, vegetable and fruit cultivation has then become sustainable? To get everyone involved, it is important to share knowledge, work together and connect people. That is why Jan Groen, founder and owner of Green Organics, is involved in multiple initiatives that are accelerating the organic flow:

– BioAcademy, for knowledge development within companies, organizations and knowledge institutions (co-founder and secretary)
– Trade association BioNederland/VBP, for producers and trade (chairman)
– Stichting Loverendale, for investment in agricultural land for bio-dynamic agriculture (treasurer)
– Organic Processing and Trade Association (OPTA), the first European association for organic trading companies and processors (co-founder)
– Biobeurs, organic trade fair (director)
– Bionext, trade organisation for the organic sector (member of the supervisory board)
– Chain group for field potatoes Bionext, for questions about bio-legislation (chain group member)
– Chain group covered cultivation Bionext, for questions about greenhouse cultivation (chain group member)

Organic and bio-dynamic
Green Organics works with organic and bio-dynamic produts. Organic farming treats nature, humans and animals with respect. No chemical pesticides or fertilizers, for instance. The farmers also cultivate a different crop on the land each year to keep the soil vital and fertile.

Bio-dynamic agriculture is a form of organic agriculture, based on anthroposophical principles by philosopher Rudolf Steiner with a holistic view of nature and farm life. Nature is seen as a connected whole. This means agriculture is also connected with things like the climate, soil fertility, water pollution, biodiversity and air quality.
Bio-dynamic products can be recognized by the Demeter quality mark. The ‘regular’ organic products can be recognized by the European Bio quality mark.

Organic and bio-dynamic require certifications. See the certifications of Green Organics.
