Our mission is to promote a sustainable lifestyle and broadly educate the public about the health benefits of organic products and the way of growing, breeding and processing organic food.

Our activity supports and promotes Polish agriculture and the conversion of farms from conventional to organic production.
As a representative of the certified organic food environment, we are a partner for the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and other ministries.
