SEAE was established in 1992 to combine the efforts of farmers, technicians, scientists and others to develop socially, economically and environmentally sustainable agricultural systems. The fundamental objective of ecological agriculture movements is to produce premium food and raw materials while safeguarding the environment and soil fertility through the optimal use of local resources and a stronger focus on rural cultures, ethical values of social development and quality of life.

Organic agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems, biodiversity and people. It relies on ecological processes and nutrient cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of external inputs with adverse effects. Organic agriculture combines traditional knowledge, innovation and modern science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved (IFOAM, 2004).
This Belgian company covers a wide range of organic issues. It produces a bi-monthly review.
