Organic Biodynamic and Mediterranean Products (OBM)
What is an Organic Biodynamic and Mediterranean OBM product?
The Organic Biodynamic and Mediterranean Products (OBM) meet several requirements that make it analytically and oragnoleptically unique. Those products also have complete traceability identified, from the geographical origin of cultivation, its cultivation system, its collection and processing.
Organic agriculture is a system that considers environmental impacts by eliminating the use of synthetic inputs, such as synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, veterinary drugs, genetically modified seeds and breeds, preservatives, additives and irradiation.
Organic products are those which have been produced, stored, processed, handled and marketed in accordance with precise technical specifications as described previously.
Biodynamic farming takes a holistic approach and considers the farm as an integrated, living organism. Fields, crops, animal husbandry and farmers form a closed-loop with a view to foster the fertility and productivity of the soil by restoring humus status and ensuring the inherent functioning of flora and fauna. Thus, biodynamic farms are self-sustaining and self-nourishing ecosystems that provide high-quality products impossible to achieve neither with other sustainable farming methods nor with chemical fertilizers
Biodynamics expands the meaning of organic agriculture incorporating metaphysical practices to well-established sustainable techniques. Biodynamic farmers not only emphasize the importance of healthy soils, quality crops and humane treatment of livestock but also monitor the cycles of nature, such as the movements of the planets and the phases of the moon, to understand how they affect their development. Under this vision, the sowing, crop rotation and harvest follow the cycles of nature in order to maintain the environmental properties of the soil and plants unaltered.
The foundation of a biodynamic farm leads to healthier, balanced crops that preserve all from the soil. The successive products deriving from these biodynamic crops will maintain their enhanced properties, creating a unique value proposition in all stages of the supply chain.
