Conventional cultivation means a traditional cultivation, where lower quality standards are applied and the use of pesticides is allowed. In organic farming, on the other hand, organic seeds are sown, organic fertilizers are used and no pesticides are used. The Demeter standard goes even further than the organic standard, because here the natural cycle is respected, only special varieties are used and only a few, selected additives in fertilizer or animal feed are allowed. We always strive for the highest cultivation standard for raw materials in our assortment. For more information about our cultivation standards, visit our “Cultivation” page .
