Organic foods are produced using methods which do not involve modern synthetic inputs, such as synthetic pesticides or fertilizers and genetically modified organisms. They are not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or chemical food additives. For most of human history, agriculture can be described as organic. It wasn't until the 20th century that synthetic chemicals were introduced to the food supply as part of the Green Revolution beginning in the 1940s, which refers to a series of research, development and technology transfer initiatives. Among those initiatives was the development of high-yielding varieties of cereal grains, synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, and other processes for the purpose of industrial farming. The organic farming movement also began in the 1940s in response to the Green Revolution.

Organic food production is a heavily regulated industry - it must contain at least 95% organic ingredients to be certified organic. Foods claiming to be organic must also be free of artificial food additives, and are processed with fewer artificial methods, materials and conditions, such as chemical ripening, food irradiation, and genetically modified ingredients. Several surveys and studies have attempted to examine and compare conventional and organic systems of farming. Contrary to critics, a 2007 study compiling research from 293 different comparisons into a single study to assess the overall efficiency of the agricultural systems concluded the following: “…organic methods could produce enough food on a global per capita basis to sustain the current human population, and potentially an even larger population, without increasing the agricultural land base.”
