If you see an organic label on a meat product, you can automatically assume that the animal used to provide this milk was reared organically. Basically it means that the required health and welfare standards were met, which included access to open pastures, organic feed and no use of growth hormones. However, these organic products may contain really small quantities of non-organic ingredients as well. If you want to avoid those, it would a good idea to opt for those milk products which have a 100% organic label on them.
