Poll: Do you buy organic food?

Are you concious of what you put in your basket or trolley? And if you buy organic, why?

GRACE MAHER, SPOKESPERSON for the Irish Organic Farmers and Growers Association wrote for today about who’s buying organic food and what ‘organic’ means.

Maher said that it seems a lot of people in Ireland purchase and eat organic food, and also referenced a study released last week which indicated that organic food is no healthier than non-organic food.

The most consistent reason cited by people for buying organic food is that it’s free from pesticides. Organic food is also free from GM ingredients and strict animal welfare standards are observed.
