In order to guarantee that products are organic, they need to be certified, and that’s what we’ve done. The Australian Certified Organic Standard is one of the most respected and rigorous standards in the world for organic production, and is published by the organic industry’s not-for-profit representative group, Australian Organic.
Organic certification involves auditing our methods to ensure that they comply with the strict guidelines of organic production. Organics is not just “chemical free”. It is a whole system or holistic means of growing and handling the things we consume. The whole system is linked – soil, plants, animals, food, people, environment. ‘Certified Organic’ products are grown and processed without the use of synthetic chemicals, fertilisers or GMOs. Organic is an innovative method of production, and is increasingly recognised as being on the leading edge of food and fibre technology.
Discerning consumers are happy to pay a fair price for a guarantee that the organic produce they purchase is supporting businesses that aim for ecologically sustainable practices - looking after the environment we all share. The only way you can be assured you are buying genuine, organic products is to purchase those certified with Australian Certified Organic, recognised by the ‘bud’ symbol.
