Why does organic cost more?

While organic food is sometimes more expensive than non-organic, there are ways to keep costs down. In an ideal world, organic wouldnt need to be more expensive. A big part of the problem is that the true cost of our food isnt reflected in the price, both the positives and the negatives. So food that is produced in ways that may contaminate our water, or lead to antibiotic resistance in people, may seem cheap in the store, but the real cost can be very high indeed.

Where there is a price difference, you are paying for the special care organic farmers place on protecting the environment andimproving animal welfare.As the costs of farming with oil-based fertilisers and chemicals increase, the price gap between organic and non-organic is closing.

Going organic is easier than youd think. Food, health, beauty and textile products that hold the Soil Association organic symbol have been produced to the highest possible animal welfare and environmental standards. Look for the logo!
