Organic farming allows consumers to choose foods, as well as having the prerogative to be free from residues of synthetic substances, also have a high "ethical-social value" because they help to strengthen the physiological 'bond between earth and man.

The European Union has decided to take action to regulate the sector with the Reg. (EC) 2092/1991 and with the new Reg. (EC) 834/2007 of January 1, 2009 that completes the previous and simplifies the subject for both farmers and consumers by defining the rules of production, the labeling and certification that operators must adapt at all stages of production, preparation, marketing and import of organic food products.

The brand Organic indicates that the product has been grown and processed in compliance with the strict EU rules for organic foods and drinks. Manufacturers must thus indicate the reference number on the label of the certification authority and the name of the last producer, processor or distributor who worked the product.
