Organic food – What is an ‘organic’ label really worth?

Organic food – What is an ‘organic’ label really worth? | Food As Medicine | Scoop.it

July 12, 2013 Ethical Corporation

Supermarkets in North America and Europe are overflowing with organic-labelled fruit, vegetables, eggs and meats. More than 80 countries have organic standards and products carry one or more of 200 seals, logos and certification claims.

But are consumers able to make informed choices? What’s the real ethical impact of “buying organic”? The answers are murkier than you might think.... http://www.ethicalcorp.com/supply-chains/organic-food-%E2%80%93-what-%E2%80%98organic%E2%80%99-label-really-worth

This  appears  to  offer  some  quite  definitive  statements  on  'Organic'.

Jose's curator insight, March 20, 12:33 PM

After reading this article and having worked at a organic farmers market, i do not believe everything labeled as "organic" can all be 100 percent accurate. Although many are certified or classified as being organic i do not believe what the organic companies are trying to sell us. Makes me as an individual believe what is going on in the world, where you cannot trust what is being put down your mouth. Obviously a person has to eat but what exactly are they eating is the proper question. Certainty an eyebrow raising situation i believe everything is a scam. People will pay for something that is labeled as "organic" which only profits the business and is all about money, rather then be as a positive interest to an individual.

And I said that it was a very valid point. ;-) I would not use a shortened URL for any other purpose than sharing privately.

Yes, I think it is ok if you share in signatures or business cards. But I am not an expert on Google, so maybe someone will have a better answer for you?
