Australian Certified Organic
What is Organic?
|Whole systems approach|
|Organics is not just “chemical free”. It is a whole systems or holistic means of growing and handling food. 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 GMO’s.|
|Organic is an innovative method of farming and production – and is increasingly being recognised as being on the leading edge of food and fibre technology.|
Why Certified Organic?
|In order to guarantee that products are organic, they need to be certified. Organic certification involves auditing an operation’s methods to ensure that they comply with the guidelines of organic production.
Over 70% of organic certified operators in Australia are granted permission to use the ACO logo, which we affectionately refer to as the “BUD”.
|Standards setting follows a highly transparent process with the industry’s key stakeholders providing input via approx. a dozen Australian Organic Advisory Groups. These standards are upheld by rigorous auditing of operations and a third party report reviewing process.
This process itself is audited by government departments and authorities worldwide for ACO to maintain its accreditation as an international certifier.
|All links in the chain|
|Wholesalers, retailers and consumers alike all know that the BUD logo is their guarantee of organic integrity. Every step of the process (from paddock to plate) must be audited according to the Organic Standard to be able to market a product using the sought-after organic BUD logo.|
