Organically Certified Grain
Many in the food industry considered the organic movement a novel consumer-based phenomenon. A fad that while trending is generating lucrative merchandising opportunities. In-turn this is attracting a profusion of new participants interested in the organic food sector. Many of these new participants have limited understanding, expertise or foundation in the organic industry and a long-term commitment to the sector. This isn’t the circumstance for Rein’s stakeholders.
In the 1980’s long before organic grains were mainstream our stakeholders were developing organic farming solutions and since then have been working to build a viable and profitable organic sector as primary producers, processors, marketers, and industry experts. Today, we remain committed to that continued evolution.
WE HAVE BEEN WORKING TO BUILD A VIABLE AND PROFITABLE ORGANIC SECTOR AS PRIMARY PRODUCERS, PROCESSORS, MARKETERS, AND INDUSTRY EXPERTS
The commercial grain farming sector has become highly dependent on the high uses of synthetic fertilizer, herbicides, pesticides, fungicides. Globally the application of crop inputs has increased significantly and as a result there is heightening concerns about the impact this is having on public health and our environment.
There is scientific based evidence which supports these negative aspects and that the excessive use of these crop inputs has created environmental problems which have a harmful effect to the land and water ways. This deterioration in the health of our soils is impacting the economic viability of our farms and is raising concerns surrounding our current farming practices. Other studies have drawn conclusions that this over-use of crop inputs not only leaves residual markers in the food we in the farming community are producing, but it has also diminished the nutritional quality of that food. Therefore, the choice of sustainable and healthy farming practices is our aim and makes good sense. Our customers appreciate the resulting high quality, organic products.
