Why Eat Organic Meat?
Not all meat is the same. We only sell products from certified organic and free-range producers because we want to ensure our products are of high quality, and farmed sustainably and ethically.
We choose to eat organic for the following reasons:
Organic Meat Health Benefits
Organic food is chemical-free making it the purest available and ensures only clean, nutrient-rich, whole ingredients are fuelling your body. In fact, choosing to consume only organic meats has a range of health benefits including high levels of antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and lower cholesterol than other processed meat alternatives.
No Synthetic Substances
Unfortunately, many food additives found in processed meats and artificial products can result in the unnecessary ingestion of food additives. This is known to lead to adverse health effects such as headaches, allergic reactions, rashes, asthma and more. By consuming organic meat, you can feel confident you are eating clean foods that do not contain any additives or artificial ingredients.
Choosing to eat certified organic meat is also a great way to ensure your food is GMO-free. Currently, Australian food labelling laws do not explicitly state food packaging must declare if ingredients are derived from GMO ingredients.
So, by eating organic meat, you can rest assured knowing your product is free from additives, GMOs and other unwanted artificial ingredients.
