For Coconut Bliss, organic certification has always been a top priority. Using organic ingredients is the only way to ensure every ingredient is farmed in harmony with nature. The prodigious use of synthetic herbicides and pesticides in conventional farming damages the life-giving biodiversity of the soil, contaminates ground water, and is harmful for the farmworkers who apply these chemicals. Organic farming methods provide no shortcuts for facilitating a plant from seed or flower to fruition, and finally to harvest. Buying organic ingredients supports these farmers who do the hard work of minimizing weeds and pests without synthetic, petroleum-based chemicals.
It is also important to note that purchasing certified organic products is the most reliable way to avoid Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). The USDA National Organic Program (NOP) has never allowed the use of GMO seeds, and requires controls to mitigate GMO drift. If you would like to learn more about USDA organic requirements and GMOs, the Organic Trade Association’s Fact Sheet has clear and concise information.
Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss is certified organic by Organic Certifiers. All of our ingredients and the processing facility are audited on an annual basis. We are proud to work with Organic Certifiers and the organic foods industry to spread the message of the beauty and benefits of organic farming while supporting organic farmers around the world.
