Organic vegetable products are products grown without fertilizers or chemical synthesis pesticides (fungicides, insecticides or herbicides). Therefore, no residues of these substances.
Only organic fertilizers and natural minerals are used and nitrogen fertilization is limited to 170 KGN / ha and year (as in vulnerable areas).
Plant health is based on preventive methods, and only natural phytosanitary products can be used that are included in Annex II of Regulation (EC) 889/2008.
Transgenic crops are not allowed.
Ecological/Organic certification guarantees that the products have been produced or produced in accordance with the rules of organic farming, and that they have been controlled throughout their production, processing, packaging and marketing.
In our case, the organism that audits us, is the CCPAE (Catalan Council of Ecological Agrarian Production): http://www.ccpae.org
The CCPAE is the control authority of Catalonia and its function is to audit and certify the organic agri-food products of Catalonia.
The Catalan Council for Ecological Agrarian Production (CCPAE) is a public law corporation with its own legal personality. This body is administratively supervised by the Department of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Food of the Generalitat de Catalunya.
The Council is included in the list of public authorities and control bodies published annually by the European Union.
