Belgium is one of the European countries that uses the most pesticides and chemical fertilisers.
The impact on farmers' health, and also on product quality, is a cause for concern.
So there's plenty of room for improvement, especially as the future of organic farming looks promising.
In 2022, a representative sample of the Belgian population was questioned about organic practices:
- 62% were aware of the existence of the European label
- 63% were aware of the principles of the European label
- Even more promising, 59% said they intended to consume organic products in the future!
Investing in organic produce in Belgium is an opportunity worth seizing, for the health of farmers, the quality of products and to meet growing consumer demand !
