All countries around the world define the term "Organic" in different ways, and the citizens of those countries do not always agree on the definition that is being used. For all intensive purposes, the following quote from USDA presents a fair structure for the movement.
“What is organic product? Organic product is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic crops are grown without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation.
Before a product can be labeled ‘organic,’ a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic products before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.”
