Maintaining its leadership position as a premium global berry brand that is known across the planet, visionary Sun Belle president and founder Janice Honigberg decided many years ago to begin offering organic berries under the Green Belle label. The Green Belle label has grown to become recognized by consumers as a premium organic berry that is “produced through approved methods that integrate cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity” as specified by the USDA. Synthetic fertilizers, irradiation, and genetic engineering are forbidden.
Organic farming has had a positive impact on Sun Belle’s conventionally grown products as well; the lessons and best practices we’ve learned from organic farming have now been implemented in conventional farms. As a result, Sun Belle minimizes chemical inputs, substituting them with natural means of pest control in order to make berry cultivation more sustainable for consumers, our land, and our workers.
Green Belle organic berries can be prepared just like their conventional cousins, so be sure to try Green Belle berries in our berry recipes.
