Pre-O are a certification label that allows farmers that are making the transition to organic agriculture to market their produce with respect to the fact that harmful cultivation methods are no-longer used, and that the produce reflects a ‘pre-organic’ state. This is beneficial to the consumer unable to afford high-end organic produce, and beneficial to the farmer who is in the ‘organic-transition’ period yet suffering from non-organic prices. Until now, no outright ‘pre-organic’ offering has existed in the food market. Pre-O are making that change.
