The very first Biotta juice in 1957 was already made from organically farmed produce. Since then we have been consistently producing 100% organic juices. But what exactly does organic mean? And what are the differences from conventional agriculture?

What distinguishes organic farming?

1. Holistic thinking:
Organic farming is conceived as a holistic ecological system that takes into consideration the soil, plants, animals, humans, water and air.

2. Natural fertilisation:
The fertilisers comprise nutrient-rich, living, animal and mineral components.

3. Abstaining from artificial fertilisers, chemical sprays and genetically modified organisms

Differences between organic and conventional farming:

Organic farming

· Plants derive nutrients from microorganisms in the living, healthy soil

· Natural fertilisation using compost, manure, green manure, etc.

· Promotion and use of beneficial organisms

· Fertiliser, pesticides and GMOs prohibited

Conventional farming

· Direct feeding of plants with artificial fertilisers, resulting in weakening of the plants, loss of resistance

· Vulnerability to diseases and pests

· Use of pesticides, fungicides and herbicides

· Harms beneficial organisms; pesticide and antibiotic residues in soil, water and humans
