Organic, Inorganic, Non-GMO... What Does It All Mean?


The terms "organic", "grass-fed", "non-GMO" are all becoming quite popular in the restaurant industry, with very few explanations. Many individuals see these terms on their food items and purchase them without a second thought. But wat do these key words actually mean?

Here is a definition:
• Organic- Grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, GMOs, or radiation. Poultry, fish, eggs, meat and dairy do not contain growth hormones or antibiotics.
• Non-GMO- These food products have not been genetically altered. GMOs are used in some products in order to unnaturally last longer or grow larger.
• Grass-fed- Animals are given almost a natural diet with fresh food and the ability to graze.
•No artificial additives or preservatives- Unnatural chemicals are not added to the foods to last longer.

There are many restaurants who take pride in their menu items containing organic, non-GMO, grass-fed foods which do not contain any additives or preservatives. There restaurants may raise their prices higher than others, however individuals who strictly follow these types of diets will gladly pay extra for these options. Providing a more expensive, organic option on the menu may be able to increase a higher profit and invite a wider range of customers.

When customers are making a decision on where to dine, they often pay attention to even the smallest of details including table linens.
