Protection of the environment and food safety
Organic farming differs from traditional farming in that it excludes almost all chemical treatments of the soil, the plants and the crops. This means that the whole productive cycle is integrated, which brings benefits for health and for the environment.
EU regulations regarding organic farming ban the use of chemicals: fertilisers, insecticides, fungicides, phytosanitary products, but also ionising radiation, genetically modified products, colourants and preservatives.
Organic farming therefore uses crop rotation and organic fertilisers.
Observance of these regulations is monitored constantly by extrernal bodies appointed by the Ministry of Agriculture on behalf of the EU.
Organic farming methods make concrete abstract notions such as health, the environment, repsect, safety and nutritional properties, with the simple aim of assuring the future of our planet and of generations to come.
Azienda Agricola Buonamici wants to play its part in this endeavour through its production methods, its olive press and all its products.
