The importance of respecting seasonality in producing and consuming organic food


In today’s world, more and more people are looking for organic, gluten-free, and lactose-free foods that are produced sustainably and respect the environment. This growing trend reflects a greater awareness of the impact that our food choices have on our health and the surrounding environment and so more and more people tend to respect seasonality in food consumption.

This is one of the key practices to ensure the quality and authenticity of organic foods. But what does it exactly mean to produce and consume food following the natural rhythm of the seasons?

First and foremost, respecting seasonality means choosing to consume fruits, vegetables, and other foods that naturally grow during the season in which you are. This not only involves favoring the consumption of fresh and local products but also reducing the need to transport food from distant places, thus reducing pollution related to transportation.


Moreover, consuming seasonal food allows you to fully benefit from the sensory and nutritional properties of the foods, which are at their peak during their ripening season. Providing our bodies with fresh and nutrient-rich foods is crucial to ensuring a balanced and healthy diet.

But it’s not just about individual health: respecting seasonality also has a positive impact on the environment and biodiversity. Cultivating and consuming seasonal food promotes crop diversity and preserves local varieties, countering the loss of biodiversity and promoting the protection of the agricultural environment.

Furthermore, respecting seasonality also means supporting small producers and local markets, which often struggle to compete with large distribution chains. Buying food directly from local producers promotes the creation of a fairer and more sustainable economy, based on the valorization of the territory and local traditions.

In brief, respecting seasonality is an act of love towards oneself, the environment, and the local community. Choosing to consume seasonal food allows us to fully enjoy the flavors and beneficial properties of the foods, while also contributing to the protection of the environment and the valorization of local traditions.


For this reason, at Verlessio, we choose to produce organic, gluten-free, and lactose-free foods while respecting seasonality and using ingredients from organic and sustainable agriculture. Our artisanal products reflect our love for Italian tradition and our care for the quality and authenticity of the ingredients used.

Furthermore, at Verlessio, we have chosen to go beyond in respecting seasonality by also producing from a biodynamic garden, which follows the natural rhythms of the environment and promotes ecological balance.
