In recent years there has been expanding consumer interest in where our food comes from, how it is produced and what is actually in the food we enjoy every day. By definition, organic foods should be farmed without the use of artificial chemicals fertilizers, pesticides, or genetically modified organisms and, ideally, their producers and farmers should have achieved organic certification from the relevant authorities, working to their standards with regards to such issues as soil condition, animal feeds and methods of processing. And due to a growing awareness of the benefits of organic food, organic producers are getting more attention from the consumers of Qatar.

This is especially true of younger people who have found that chefs from their favourite local hotels and restaurants in Qatar now often prefer to use the finest organic ingredients in their menu and food preparation. The most widely purchased organic foods are vegetables, fruits, grains, meat and dairy products. And many processed organic products are now also available including breakfast cereals, cookies and cakes etc.
