Vitamin Global carries a wide variety of organic products. "Organic" means no use of synthetic pesticides and chemicals with fruit and vegetable crops, and no use of synthetic antibiotics and growth hormones with cattle and poultry. Similarly, there is an emphasis on providing a natural setting for growth and development. Therefore, there is no use of genetically modified organisms, no sewage water is used for irrigating crops, and animals are allowed to range freely. During food production, no artificial additives are used. Insects and parasites are dealt with using natural prevention methods such as natural pest eaters and homeopathic preparations.
