There are lots of reasons to choose organic food. Not only does it taste better than non-organic food, but it’s also better for your health because organic foods generally contain higher levels of vitamins and minerals. Organic food is also better for the environment because less chemicals are used, less carbon dioxide (a major greenhouse gas) is emitted, and the natural habitats of local wildlife are preserved.
What is Organic Food?
Alara is committed to producing high quality organic mueslis that are certified as organic by the Soil Association. Organic means that the food has been grown and produced without the use of artificial or chemical fertilisers or pesticides. Instead, farmers use crop rotation to make sure that the soil stays healthy – for example, they might keep cattle on a field one year to make the soil more fertile and then grow crops on that field the next year.
