Celebrating 50 Years of Organic: A Journey Guided by Nature

For half a century, the organic movement has been an unwavering beacon of hope for our planet, our health, and our future.

At Britts Superfoods, we're proud to have joined this incredible journey almost 15 years ago. As we celebrate the organisation's remarkable 50-year milestone, let's see why organic is still so important.

Organic September: A Tribute to Nature's Guardians

Organic September isn't just a month on the calendar; it's a celebration of the incredible contributions of the organic sector to our climate, the natural world, and our well-being. It's a time to recognise that while we've come far, there's much more we can do to nurture our planet.

Organic: A Holistic Approach to Farming and Food

Organic farming isn't just a label; it's a way of life that transcends the fields and reaches into our kitchens. It's about producing high-quality food while nurturing our entire food system. From the soil beneath our feet to the well-being of animals, organic practices have a profound impact.

A Changing World Needs Change

In a world facing the challenges of climate change, diet-related illnesses, and a troubling decline in wildlife populations, the need to transform our food systems has never been greater. 'Agroecological' farming systems, like organic, offer a promising path forward.

Trust in the Organic Symbol

Certification is at the heart of the organic movement. It's a legal requirement for anyone involved in growing, processing, or marketing organic products. Rigorous inspections ensure that when you spot the organic symbol, you can trust that the food and drink you're enjoying is crafted with care for people, animals, and the environment.

The Power of Organic: Four Key Benefits

  1. Better for Our Planet: Organic farming prioritises the health of our soils, water, and air. It's a shining example of sustainability. If Europe's farmlands embraced organic principles, we could slash agricultural emissions by 40-50% by 2050 while still nourishing a growing population.

  2. Higher Animal Welfare: Organic farming sets the gold standard for animal welfare. It's all about ensuring that animals destined for our plates lead fulfilling lives, with ample space, fresh air, and the freedom to express their natural behaviours.

  3. A Haven for Nature: Our wildlife is in crisis, with alarming declines in species populations. Conventional farming practices, especially pesticide use, have been identified as major culprits. Organic farming provides a lifeline for nature, creating thriving habitats for bees, birds, and butterflies.

  4. Better for Us: Organic food isn't just safer; it's a healthier choice. With fewer pesticides, additives, and preservatives, it supports our well-being and our planet's health.

Our Pledge to Organic Excellence

At Britts Superfoods, we've been wholeheartedly committed to organic farming for nearly 15 wonderful years. Our outdoor-grown organic wheatgrass juice is a testament to our dedication to sustainability and your well-being. It thrives in the glorious British countryside, following nature's rhythm. Our juice is raw, preserving the natural goodness of this superfood.

In our eyes, the best place for wheatgrass is outdoors, soaking up the sun and nature's blessings. This approach allows it to reach its full nutritional potential. Our wheatgrass grows outdoors in local Northamptonshire fields, following nature's seasonal dance. We grow it, we juice it, and we bring it to your door, never powdered—just pure, delicious goodness.

As we raise a toast to 50 years of organic brilliance, let's continue making choices that honour our planet, support our well-being, and preserve the wonders of the natural world. Dive into the goodness of organic by visiting our shop here  today.
