Current industrialized agriculture and intensive farming techniques, according to scientific studies, leave no room for doubt regarding the negative consequences they have on ecosystems. This agriculture causes harmful impacts on natural resources, biodiversity, and even on the economy and society if we look beyond the short-term benefit.
For this reason, at Delicious & Sons we are committed to organic and sustainable agriculture as the basis of what we do.
Organic farming, if it wants to be sustainable, has to comply with three basic principles:
- Generate additional income in rural areas, sustainability includes social and economic aspects as well.
- Maintain the physical-biological conditions of the agro-ecosystems, by taking care of the soil so that it remains full of minerals that will nourish the crops and the biodiversity that in turn helps to control pests sustainably.
- Make better food products, which will arrive at your table full of flavor and nutrients.
To achieve all this, organic farming avoids the use of chemical phytosanitary products, uses techniques such as crop rotation or the use of compost, and always seeks to create small ecosystems where biodiversity can develop.
The European Union regulates organic production, labeling, and control, for example, regarding which products may or may not be used to manage pests and diseases. This is what the organic symbol stands for, compliance with current farming regulations and serves as a guarantee of quality for the client. Of course, D&S has both the EU Organic label as well as the USDA Organic label for the United States.
This is one of the pillars that makes D&S sustainable and allows us to take care of the environment from the ground up. With any of our products, you are contributing to creating a better planet while eating healthy.
