Organic means working with nature, not against it.

The term “organic” can only be used on products that are grown and produced without pesticides, and other harmful chemicals. Organic food comes from trusted sources. Any food products labelled as organic must meet a strict set of standards which define what farmers and food manufacturers can and cannot do in the production of organic food.

All organic produce must be grown on soil that has been free of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides for three years prior to harvest with similar regulations in place for organic meat production. In order to be designated organic, animals have to be raised in living conditions that accommodate their natural behaviors and be given a diet that is exclusively organic, with administered antibiotics and hormones also prohibited in order for an animal to qualify as organic.

Natural foods can include organic foods, but not all natural foods are organic. All organic foods are required to be certified under an organic certification program.

To ensure our customers get the real organic products, all of our products must pass White Flower Label, a curation program held by Board of Consultancy & Advisory of Komunitas Organik Indonesia, the biggest organic community in Indonesia.

To pass WFL curation, a product must be free from artificial flavors, artificial food colorants, artificial preservatives and artificial sweeteners. Also, all products must not made from Genetically Modified Organism.
