Certified organic is the best guarantee youll get that meat has been produced humanely. Choice

Organic certification places a strong emphasis on animal welfare which tremendouslyimpacts the quality of the meat for the better. By choosing meat that has been raised by industry best practicehigh animal welfare means the animal had a humane and low-stressorientated life and that the end product ismore tender and better tasting meat than that of conventionally raised animals.

If you are trying to work out if the meat you are looking at buying is Organic,Choicefound that price was a helpful indicator, stating organic meat costs more, so it pays to know what youre buying.Organic meat doesnt always have to cost an arm and a leg, we can assure you of thatbut if you ever come acrossOrganic meat that seems super cheap, the motive is certainly present to question its credibility. Our rule of thumb is if a butcher or even the back of packaged meat cant tell you from where the meat comes from and cant prove that the meat is organic either through a certified organic label or accreditation, then we would suggest that you dont buy it. If they cant or wont tell you exactly what it is,how can you be sure you are getting Organic meat and not some dodgy cut that has been pumped full with harmful nasties like anti-biotics?
