There’s no denying, a health-focused diet has risen in popularity. But it is no longer about counting or cutting calories. These days, being healthy is purely more about the quality of what you put into your mouth.

Undeniably, the trend has also affected our pantry. All the stickers labelled “organic” are becoming an essential standard when buying and sourcing foodstuff.
