Certified Organic Frozen Sweet Corn from Spain (2.5kg)

Horizon Farms

FR423


This product has now received JAS (Japanese Agricultural Standards) organic certification. The product has been produced in accordance with organic standards for a while, so rest assured there is no change in the content of the product, but it is now recognized as such by Japan's high standards.

One full bag of 2.5kg (5.5lbs) certified organic, naturally farmed fresh frozen sweet corn kernels from Spain, Europe. No use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. GMO-free. Freshly harvested, blanched, and then individually flash-frozen (IQF) for freshness and quality. Sweet corn kernels are amazingly convenient and versatile. Because they are individually quick frozen you can easily take the amount required straight from the freezer and use it as usual.

Grown in soil that has been free of pesticides for at least 3 years prior to cultivation, and without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers during cultivation. Additionally, the storage, processing, and distribution of all seeds and harvested products are strictly controlled to prevent contamination with outside pesticides and genetically modified organisms.

Blanching is a non-chemical simple process of scalding the vegetables for 60 seconds in 90°C (200°F) hot water and then shock cooling in ice water to stop the cooking process. Blanching stops enzyme actions that cause loss of flavor, color, and texture, it also cleanses the surface of dirt and organisms, brightens the color, and helps to preserve the vitamins.

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?

✔ Free of harmful synthetic chemical inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides, antibiotics, food additives, irradiation, and the use of sewage sludge.

✔ Free of any kind of irradiation

✔ Free of any type of GMOs

✔ The farmland and soil in use have at least been 3 years free of any chemical treatment before the harvest has been certified as organic.

✔ Organic certifications come with multiple audits or on-site visits a year. Organic producers are rigidly checked and inspected by governmental bodies or certified third parties. Organic certification requires detailed bookkeeping and documentation. This makes organic produce technically 100% traceable from farm to table.

✔ Organic certification standards require a strict separation of non-organic certified produce starting from the farmland, soil, harvesting, processing, export, and even import and storage.

✔ Organic farming is a more sustainable alternative when it comes to food production. The lack of harmful pesticides and a wider variety of plants enhances biodiversity and results in better soil quality and reduced pollution from fertilizer or pesticide run-off.

✔ Organic vegetables and fruits are produced mostly by family-owned farms that own smaller acres of organic land. Although the demand is increasing, organic land does not even make 30% of all farmland in any given country (Japan ranks at the very bottom!). This makes organic farming lucrative and more profitable for farmers and gives them a fair chance to live a sustainable life and support their local communities.

✔ Certified organic in Japan and Australia (as well as in most industrialized countries) is a protected word and the use is legally restricted, meaning that you can be rest assured that Horizon Farms is an officially registered certified organic importer and all organic imported produce has been inspected and verified in the export country as well as in Japan.

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.

Translated from Japanese: My 3-year-old kid loves corn, but the corn sold at supermarkets is genetically modified.
I was afraid to give it to him because I didn't know where it came from or if there were pesticides used.
All of this was explained firmly, so I bought them with a great peace of mind.
My child also eats them very often. They’re so delicious you can’t compare them to the ones on the market ♪♪
