Organic production is the sector with the greatest dynamism and growth expectations of the agrifood chain, not only because of its commitment with the quality of food, animal welfare and environmental conservation, but also because of the multiple social benefits added to technical management.

Agroecology is the inspiring science of this model, responsible for an important part of this differential that it maintains with other productive models. As a science, it studies the agrosystemic dynamic to achieve a balance between productivity and resilience. As a model of uses, it designs sustainable agricultural systems that recover successful traditional knowledge, optimize production and conserve productive resources, carrying out a climatically-smart management model. As a social movement, it pursues multifunctional roles for agriculture, promotes ethics, justice and gender equality, enriches local identity and reinforces the economic viability of the territory.

The organic management is a source of low-cost opportunities to mitigate the effects of climate variability, harvesting atmospheric carbon through biomass and soil. The production and the local organic industry are a source of hope for the most vulnerable rural population. They allow rural youth to link to their environment, as a way of social progress, providing a generational replacement.

It is clear, organic production goes beyond the simple substitution of inputs, it goes beyond a market for quality products or being the basis of green tourism; It supposes a scientific and ethical paradigm shift, focused on achieving a sustainable, profitable and equitable agrifood sector.Organic production is the sector with the greatest dynamism and growth expectations of the agrifood chain, not only because of its commitment with the quality of food, animal welfare and environmental conservation, but also because of the multiple social benefits added to technical management.
