Can natural ingredients make a difference?

They ensure that the highest possible percentage of their physically processed agricultural ingredients are certified organic by weight, meaning avoiding tonnes of pesticides being used in everyday production.

Why choose organic?

Being organic means working with nature. It means higher levels of animal welfare, lower levels of pesticides and more environmentally sustainable management of the natural environment. Organic products are kind to the earth – and kind to people – as they have all of their natural antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and no harmful pesticides.
