We call our foods “beyond organic” because they exceed the standards required to obtain the organic label. In order to survive, commercial organic farmers need to protect their livelihood by spraying trees in the flowering stage as well as in the fruit stage. Otherwise, all it takes is one unseasonal rain and their harvest would be destroyed. Insects that flee the chemicals sprayed on conventional farms can easily invade organic farms. That is another reason commercial organic farmer use some chemical pesticides. At Azulverde Foods, we use expensive natural neem oil instead. Because we follow more stringent organic and ecological measures than the “organic” certification demands, we can in all honesty call our foods “beyond organic”.
Our Raw Forest Honey goes directly from the hive to the bottle. We source it from local Adivasi tribes here in the Matheran region. Thanks to their knowledge of the forest and the bees, we can offer you rare indigenous and pure raw honey! It not only tastes delicious, it is also considered medicinal and can be used for a multitude of health issues. In return for this precious gift of nature, we compensate the Adivasis handsomely for their efforts.
Our selection of fresh produce is seasonal. We dehydrate or freeze some of the fruits and vegetables so that you can enjoy them around the year. We rinse fruits and vegetables in Living Water before freezing or dehydrating them. Living Water is also called structured water. It is a natural antioxidant and preservative; it keeps the molecular and energetic structure of fruits and vegetables intact. This results in produce that remains fresh for much longer and is also tastier than conventionally frozen foods.
We will keep adding new foods to our assortment as we expand our sourcing. Superior quality, organic principles and the general wholesomeness of our products will remain the main standards we adhere to. (Please be aware that organic produce is often not flawless in appearance! In fact, if a fruit looks picture-perfect, it probably has been exposed to pesticides and other chemicals.)
We hope you now have a better understanding of what differentiates Azulverde Foods from other organic brands. Please contact us for delivery in the Mumbai metropolitan area, or if you would like to collaborate with us.
