Meat from organic breeding farms: that means 0% antibiotics, 0% growth hormones, 0% genetically modified feed.
The organic certification process also considers meat production. Meat from organic breeding farms means no antibiotics, medicinal substances, growth promoters and hormones and no genetically modified feed.
Like in every organic production, quality is more important than quantity. In organic farms, as a rule, the animals feed on fodder produced on the farm or obtained elsewhere with appropriate certification. In the process of organic meat production, every aspect of meat production impacts the final quality of organic meat.
Organic farm must comply with the relevant regulations and standards pertaining to animal farming. The Commission Regulation (EC) No. 889/2008 specifies the number of animals which can be maintained in a given area, their feeding, as well as treatment and the time of slaughter.
Organic animal production means that the animals have access to free range, feed and meadows and pastures, water, proper hygiene, proper micro-climate and lighting conditions. Organic rearing is based on a caring approach: the welfare of animals influences the quality of the organic ingredient.
The welfare of animals is controlled until the last phase: animal transport and humane slaughter.
The result of this process is a 100% organic meat of different animals: beef, pork, poultry. The Organicity network proposes different meat products like dry and cured meat.
