Organic farming is a method of crop production that involves much more than choosing not to use pesticides, fertilizers, and genetically modified organisms.
It focuses on the health and well-being of the biosphere, all in a context that values the local economy and the development of the agricultural territory.
By dealing directly with growers and controlling the process from sowing to harvest, we can ensure continuous quality checks so that no unwanted chemicals or genetically modified traits cend up in the final product. Hence emphasizing on careful processing and handling methods in order to maintain the organic integrity and vital qualities of the product at all stages of production.
Over time, Ceresco has developed highly effective traceability systems to closely monitor each step of soy production. Crops from Ceresco producers undergo a series of quality and purity tests before being accepted for processing.
By acquiring certifications of a dozen government and private agencies, Ceresco can offer a wide variety of organic soybeans, free of chemical fertilizers and synthetic pesticides to companies on all continents. In fact, Ceresco provides close to half of all the organic soybeans sold for human consumption in eastern Canada.
