Why organic?


As defined by the Organic Trade Association, organic agriculture is an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity. It is based on using minimal off-farm inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony.

Basically, organic agriculture puts the focus on improving soil fertility through the use of mineral and natural fertilizers and enhancing biological cycles for natural insect and disease control.

As consumer interest in organic products rises and new organic production and marketing systems keep evolving, organic agriculture continues to rapidly expand throughout the world.

Many Dole Organic products are Fair Trade certified. This means that the fruit grower or farm workers, either bananas or pineapples, will have a fair price for their business and an additional premium to invest in the community or business development. Also Fair Trade certified products stand for environmental responsible production methods and welfare of the communities and surroundings.
