History of Organic Breakfast Month
In the early 20th century, some farmers began to adopt organic farming methods in America. But the organic food movement really took steam in the 1960s and 1970s. Consumers became more concerned about using pesticides and other chemicals in food production and started demanding more natural and organic food options.
In 1990, the U.S. Congress passed the Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA), which created national standards for organic agriculture. Over the past few decades, organic food options have become more widely available in the U.S., with organic farms and products now found in all 50 states.
In recent years, the popularity of organic food has extended to breakfast options, with many organic breakfast products now available, including organic cereal, granola, oatmeal, and yogurt. As more consumers become aware of the benefits of organic food, Albertsons Companies offers a solution with O Organics®, USDA-certified organic grocery products that are tasty, made responsibly, and affordable for all consumers.
All O Organics® products are USDA Certified organic, which means the products were grown in environmentally friendly ways that help to conserve biodiversity, promote ecological balance, and protect natural resources. This ensures that at least 95% of the ingredients in each O Organics product are produced without the use of synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, antibiotics, added growth hormones, or Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) — providing you and your family with a complete line of wholesome and great tasting food.
