Organic farming and livestock keeping is in many ways environmental and animal friendlier than conventional farming. Organic farming excludes or strictly limits the use of synthetic fertilizers, chemicals, plant growth regulators such as hormones, livestock antibiotics, food additives, and genetically modified organisms. For this reason, organic products are also supposed to be healthier for consumers. The standards of organic farming are officially regulated in the EU, USA and many other parts of the world. Organic products may carry an organic label, in the Netherlands this is the EKO label, and the EU leaf can be found in every EU country.
