Consumers are increasingly conscious of the environment and demand a natural, sustainable and healthy product. This is why it is critical to understand the types of products that we find in supermarkets in regards to their origin, cultivation and other characteristics.
There are a few terms that can seem confusing, such as organic product, clean label, non-GMO product, transgenic…
Let’s see what each one means and the differences between them:
- Clean label: there is no fixed definition since it varies according to country. It can be understood as referring to products composed only of natural ingredients or to unprocessed products.
- Organic: A product is considered organic depending on how it was grown and processed. There are specialised entities with their own regulations and certifications.
- Transgenic: foods that have been genetically modified to introduce certain characteristics.
- Non-GMO: not transgenic
At Planasa, we select plants with specific characteristics depending on the producers’ needs and market requirements, including early production, high productivity, specific colour and size, ease of harvest… After this selection, we crossbreed the plants to obtain the best results and offer our producers quality and non-GMO varieties and plants. This enables them to meet their business objectives and expand the range of varieties available on the market, thus providing consumers with access to red fruits all year round…
