There is nothing worse than a bad knock off. Remember that Praba purse that lost its buckle on the second day? Or those “designer” sunglasses you couldn’t actually see through? Sometimes the real deal just can’t be replaced and the old mantra ‘you get what you pay for’ makes sense. The same principle applies to groceries, and particularly if you are the type who buys organic. If you want to be sure you are getting what you paid for, you might want to understand what’s behind the brand new Canada Organic logo.
The Canadian Organic Standards (overseen by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency) is setting high standards for Canadian food products making the organic claim. The new logo will only be permitted on products that have an organic content that is greater than 95% and has been certified according to Canadian requirements for organic products.
