Which is better Organic or Natural?

Canadians trust natural over organic“, suggests a survey performed by BrandSpark International in 2010. The poll also suggests that, sixty per cent of Canadian consumers believe it’s important a new product be made from “all-natural ingredients,” while 45 per cent have “greater trust” in natural products than those labelled organic.
