The guiding principle of organic farming is the maintenance of sustainable ecosystems for people, animals, and croplands by respecting the relationships between soil, plants, and animals. During planting, growing, and processing, organic products cannot be exposed to synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, plant growth regulators (hormones), and genetically modified organisms.
Consumer demand for organic products continues to grow. NutraSun Foods has offered organic products since its inception in 2003. Through its sister company, Growers International Organic Sales Inc. (GIOSI), NutraSun has access to some of the highest quality organic wheat grown on the Canadian Prairies. GIOSI has a network of organic grain elevators and can source organic grain from around the world.
