Organic products are healthier and more respectful with the environment. People live from what nature provides, animals, plants, air, water, etc. The balanced coexistence between all is broken when we consume natural resources in a massive way, usually due to the increase in population or the misuse that we make of them. The traditional methods to obtain, store and stock up on food are not enough. Industrialization to feed the world population seeks to cover this need.
