Organic is considered a good choice for personal health as well as environmental health. Since it contains nothing artificial, eating organic is akin to eating ‘real’ food. Going organic is also the simplest way to avoid eating genetically modified organisms, since certified organic standards prohibit their use.
Since the conditions for organic food production are more stringent than for non-organic food, the cost is higher for both producer and consumer. However, as demand increases, so does supply, which means economies of scale are starting to be seen.
Responsible retailers are also making great efforts to keep the cost of organic food manageable. We spoke to Christine Rubi-Cruz, Wellness and Lifestyle Manager at Cold Storage, about what the premium supermarket chain is doing to help bring the benefits of organic food to its customers.
“By working directly with our suppliers, and eliminating superfluous middlemen, we pass on the savings to our customers. So these days you can find an organic product that can be priced at 5 to 10 percent more than the conventional product, which is much better than before when you could really notice the difference in price,” said Christine.

Meat, milk and dairy products, if herbicides, pesticides, antibiotics and growth hormones ingested by livestock are a concern
Coffee and tea, not only because they are chemical-
Condiments and sauces like salad dressings, ketchup and other pantry essentials, because conventional versions often have artificial ingredients to improve taste, shelf life and
Baby/Toddler food, especially in view of the fact that organic products are priced more or less on a par with conventional ones
We wish you well on your journey towards a clean, toxin-free diet of organic food.
