Does that also apply to the organic versions?Many varieties of fruit & veg are sprayed both with pesticides and wax. The wax, where used, is a petro-chemical by-product used to enhance the colour and "shininess" of the product. Tomatoes & apples from certain are treated this way and bananas are routinely sprayed with pesticides when being loaded into containers at source.
Origin Green makes no claims to be organic. Bord Bia's goals do not align with those of the organic movement.I'm not even sure what that means any more. Bord Bia's Origin Green "Ireland's food and drink sustainability programme" [sic] encourages and supports farmers and food processors who use insecticides, pesticides and other industrial chemicals in food production.
