Organic food/plants produced without the use of synthetic pesticides and/or chemical fertilizers (certain approved pesticides are allowed under limited conditions) Organic foods are also processed without using industrial solvents, irradiation, or synthetic additives. Organic foods are produced in a way that complies with standards set by National governments and International Organizations. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) standards require Organic Farmers and Processors: preserve natural resources and biodiversity, support animal health and welfare, provide access to the outdoors so that animals can exercise natural behaviors, only use approved materials, do not use genetically modified ingredients, receive annual on-site inspections, and separate Organic food from non-Organic if producing both types.
