What does “organic” mean?

All of Earthbound Farm products are certified organic, which means they are grown with cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that promote ecological balance, conserve biodiversity and avoid the use of toxic and persistent chemicals and synthetic fertilizers, GMOs and irradiation.

Foods labeled as certified organic are grown and processed according to federal guidelines addressing, among many factors, soil quality, animal raising practices, pest and weed control, and use of additives. Organic producers rely on allowed natural substances (as well as a limited number of carefully evaluated synthetics from the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances, permitted for specific purposes after other methods have failed); and physically-, mechanically-, or biologically-based farming methods to the fullest extent possible.

At Earthbound Farm, we’re proud to be pioneers in the organic produce category, which is often where people first start buying organic. It means every choice we make, from how we grow our crops to what we put in our finished products, is carefully considered and consistent with National Organic Program (NOP) guidelines. Learn more about organic food production.
