Guide to Bulk Bin Labeling

Guide to Bulk Bin Labeling

The food we put into our bodies directly affects our health. So, paying close attention to the ingredients, the growing methods, where it is grown, nutritional content, all impact your well-being. 

  • Organic growing methods considerably reduce your exposure to pesticide residues and other environmental concerns
  • Organic practices protect farmworkers, who experience the most danger of acute exposure and health consequences
  • Organic food is always GMO-free. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are plants whose DNA has been altered in ways that cannot occur in nature or traditional crossbreeding, most commonly to be resistant to pesticides or to produce an insecticide

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Organic certification provides assurances that the production methods meet or exceed strict standards. When you see the “USDA Organic” label, it means that at least 95 percent of the food’s ingredients were organically produced.
