Are all of our products organic?

Our vendors offer 100% natural products (additives-free, preservatives-free….). A lot of our vendors do not use any pesticides in their productions. However not all of our vendors are certified organic (Ecocert, AB, USDA or other...). We will clearly  indicate if a product is certified organic in its description. 

Some of our products are Organic certified , we will shortly provide the links to the different organic certifications (AB, Ecocert, USDA...) we will also set a filter system that will display, upon request, only the products which possess an organic certification( of any nature) .

It is important to note that not all the certifications are equal , an organic certifaction of a country can be more or less binding to that of the neighbor country, even inside the European union.

In our experience, an organic certification is not sufficient. Some  organically stamped/certified products may be of a less quality than other 100% natural products that do not hold an organic certification.

That’s why you will find in our selection, passionate vendors who vary from « classic » farmers who  take pride in their work, Moroccan start ups that are based on innovation and high profils such as pharmacists (Nature&passion, Jerraflore… . ) or biologists (Fragancias del desierto…) who decided to invest their experiences Moroccan high quality, 100% natural products.

We decided to maintain in addition to the organic certified products, the products 100% natural  that are uncertified because , in one and , there is a varied demand ( some people simply wish for high quality 100% natural products).On the other hand  there is an offer of uncertified 100% natural products that are of excellent quality.

 

It is worth recalling that Moroccan organic certified products are mainly limited to certain kinds of products mainly intended for export and do not cover the local demand. That is why there are organic products  importers within our selection of vendors.

If you have any other question, please do not hesitate to  contact on contact@epicerieverte.ma.
