Production of organic food

The development of products from organic agriculture techniques will be one of the most appropriate to preserve the qualitative aspects of the final products. In this sense, not all technologies and systems are used in food preparation conventionally accepted in the processing of organic products.

In all those companies in which they engage with products and other non-organic, it must take all necessary measures to ensure effective separation between the two types of productions and thus avoid any contamination check to lose the quality of the products obtained. These measures will be taken along the path of organic products by the company and its facilities. Manufacturing processes for organic products will have to be spatially separated from those in non-organic products (which implies the existence of separate production lines) or time (which implies the establishment of a protocol for cleaning measures and effective separation in line with mixed use development).

Food

The specific rules for organic production provide listings of some additives, processing aids and food use of other substances whose use is permitted in the production of organic food products. These lists contain only a limited number of products, only those that are considered safer and which are essential to obtaining certain products.

Currently regulated additives are only intended for the manufacture of food products of plant origin, while those used in the preparation of food products of animal origin have not been included in European legislation, although currently there a proposal in a very advanced stage of discussion, which is expected to be adopted during 2003.

Until there is this list of additives harmonized at European level for use in obtaining the products of animal origin, it is for each Member State to establish rules in this regard.

Packaging

Materials and packaging techniques are best placed to avoid any kind of contamination of packaged food, taking into account the ecological aspects related to the procurement of packaging materials.

Storage, preservation and transport

As far as storage, preservation and transportation of organic products have to be applied and technical measures to prevent any loss of quality of organic products, as well as a mixture or contamination with other non-organic products.

A couple years ago I worked at a clinic and one of the doctors's husbands worked on a team of engineers that designed "organic" pesticides. Through talking with her, I really began to realize that even "organic" does not mean chemical-free. That's when I started growing my own vegetables, and I've never looked back.

I know that the production or organic is a little bit more expensive and takes more time but this is an improvement for the consumer and the producer as well, not to mention the goodness you bring to the environment..

.. that's a win for all the sides

Well, it is not just making the organic product and then all is done, this is a whole process or let?s say, system, in which humanity and environment is preserved in a better way that the common production, it is important to take into account the other aspects as packaging and transport and of course labeling too!
