The Dutch use of the prefix 'bio' - as in bio-industrie - may make you think of green fields and happy lambs, but in fact it means factory farming. However, bio-vlees means organic meat, not meat produced by a factory farm. To confuse the issue still further, the Dutch word for organic food is biologisch.
I must say that the organic food wave is not that big here compared to the UK. Initially we generally gave it a miss due to its pricing but we started to re-visit biologisch food, mainly for Aidan. Amazing what we would do for our love ones...
