Organic food is known to contain 50% more nutrients, minerals and vitamins than produce that has been intensively farmed. Organic food tastes better, often giving that crispy and crunchy texture and packed with flavor. Green-Os are produced by the organic farming method, without using chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Their farm is located in Tuaran, uses only quality compost and organic fertilizers to create a healthy and fertile soil. They collect and culture indigenous microbes that break down organic matters and release nutrient into soil. Instead of using pesticides and insecticides, they chose to protect their crops in net-covered and rain-sheltered green houses.
