Miksi valita luomu?

Why organic?

Luomu is a well-established Finnish abbreviation for organic farming and food production, and it means an organic, environmentally friendly and ethically high-level food production method. Organic combines the best production methods from an environmental point of view, high requirements for animal welfare and consumers' wishes for high-quality and natural products.

For example, when talking about organic grain, the production method differs from conventionally produced grain in that organic grain is not fertilized with industrial fertilizers and no chemical pesticides are used in cultivation. Instead, biological fertilizers and a careful crop rotation are used, which guarantee the conditions for the growth of the field.

Many substances in our food and environment only affect people's health with a long delay; maybe only in the next generations. Limits considered safe have been set for pesticide residues in food, which food products must not exceed. However, consumers are exposed to small permitted residue levels throughout their lives. The combined effects of several pesticides on human health are not yet known at all.

The loads of additives in sweets and delicacies are often considerable, so we want to offer cleaner options for all generations to enjoy.

    According to studies, almost a third more plant and animal species live in organic fields than in conventionally cultivated fields.

    Organic plant production is based on the efficient recycling of nutrients in order to save non-renewable natural resources.

    When the soil has a good crumb structure, the leaching of fertilizers from the fields
    into waterways is smaller than in conventional production. Groundwater and surface water pollution and eutrophication are reduced precisely by nutrients
    as a result of recycling.


    In organic products, the use of additives is very strictly regulated, and most of the permitted additives come from nature.

    According to international studies, those who prefer organic food get more from their food
    antioxidants than eating conventionally produced foods.
    Organic meat and milk contain approximately 50 percent more healthy omega-3 fatty acids than conventionally produced meat.

    An organic eater is also not exposed to antibiotics through their food, because organic animals are not given antibiotics to prevent diseases


    The rules guaranteeing the welfare of organic animals are written into the conditions of organic production. Their compliance is monitored in the annual organic inspections on organic farms. The focus is on the importance of space and proper nutrition.

    Sufficient space and the possibility of movement reduce the stress and illness of the animals.

    Animals on organic farms are also fed with natural food without genetically modified and antibiotic active ingredients.
