About Certified Organic
This product is certified Japan Agricultural Standard Organic (JAS) - both in the country of origin and Japan. Japan has one of the world's strictest organic certification standards. But what does certified organic mean when it comes to fruits and vegetables?
✔ Strictly tested for E Coli, coliforms, molds, yeasts as well as listeria and salmonella and therefore meets very high microbiological safety standards.
✔ Free of harmful synthetic chemical inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides or any food additives.
✔ Free of genetically modified seeds (non-GMO)
✔ The farmland and soil in use are free of any chemical treatments.
✔ Organic produce is heavily regulated. Producers and importers are checked and inspected by governmental bodies or certified third parties. Organic certification requires detailed bookkeeping and documentation for 100% tracability. "Certified organic" is a protected word and the use is legally restricted.
✔ Organic farming is a more sustainable when it comes to holistic food production. The lack of harmful pesticides is better for the environment.
✔ Organic produce comes mostly from family-owned farms that own smaller acres of organic land.
It is also important to mention that organic produce is more cost-intensive. Organic farming has lower yields compared to conventional farming and is oftentimes more labor-intensive as well. Additionally, organic certification and auditions require annual fees for producers, exporters, and importers resulting in higher prices for the end consumers.
Please note that non-processed, non-GMO, and chemical-free produce will always have a minor degree of defects; these may include, decolorations, insect damage, broken damage, crumble damage, squashed damage, over or under maturity, and minor natural non-harmful mold. Although rare, there may worms, scratches or mold on the product that cannot be seen during inspections. None of these are harmful or a safety issue and can be removed without worries.
