Questions to ask your organic food store

6 Questions you must ask your Organic Food Store – gain trust before you buy

How do you ensure the authenticity of organic food you are buying from your organic food store? We have put together a list of 6 questions you can ask your organic seller to satisfy yourself and buy from the organic store with confidence.

1. WHO has grown this produce?

Ask your organic food store whether they grow the produce they sell, in their own farms. Almost all organic stores merely buy and sell produce from other sources. It is almost impossible to maintain integrity of organic produce in sourcing and trading.

2. WHERE was this grown?

Find out from the store if they have traceability of the produce they sell – i.e., are they able to provide details of where the produce was grown and how it has reached the shelf it is on.

3. HOW was this grown?

Organic food production is very knowledge intensive. Verify if the growers have technical qualifications or expertise. Ask for organic certification and if they have tested the produce for pesticide residues.

4. Since WHEN is the organic food store in existence?

Organic production takes many years to bear fruit. Certification requires a minimum of 2-3 years depending on the crop. You can ask for history of organic cultivation of the supplier farms.

5. WHY do you do Organic?

Validate if the organic food store is in this business purely for business or out of passion to deliver good food to the society. It is fair to say only the most dedicated folks can sustain being in this field.

6. WHOM does the organic food store service?

Find out the experience of existing customers of the organic food store. Seek references and get in touch, to gain from their experience.
