Why does HIPP formula actually have its own organic seal?
From chocolate to potato chips, every product that meets the legal requirements can now call itself organic. Therefore, it is important to explain the difference between “standard organic” and HIPP’s organic quality in more detail.
HIPP started with organic farming more than 60 years ago. At that time, “organic” was not yet a big issue. HIPP swam against the tide and pushed ahead with organic farming with full conviction. This is how they set new standards for the quality of baby food. These quality measures are taken into account in soil selection, cultivation and processing and are thus also in every HIPP formula.
Is the EU organic seal not good enough?
The EU organic regulation is in itself a good thing. It prohibits the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, genetic engineering and artificial colors and preservatives, flavors or flavor enhancers.
However, EU laws do not regulate the quality of the organic goods in question beyond cultivation. Pollutants from the air, soil or neighboring fields can contaminate cultivated fruits, vegetables or grains. Accordingly, the legal regulations for baby food allow a very small amount of pesticides in baby food. However, HiPP aims for significantly lower levels than required by law. This means they do not allow these residues and therefore carry out seamless quality testing at a high technical level. Only flawless organic goods enter the HIPP formula and then receive its organic seal.
