Certified Organic:

what’s the difference?

You may not think twice when you pick up an organic product, but there is actually a difference between organic and certified organic products in Australia. Certified organic products have been rigorously tested through every step of the process, from the farmer’s field right up to the store shelf. Certified organic products adhere to a strict set of organic standards, such as the National Standard for Organic and Biodynamic Produce or the Australian Certified Organic Standard.

Did you know that currently in Australia there is no mandatory domestic regulation around the term ‘organic’ on product labels? This means that a product with as little as 2% organic ingredients can claim organic on its packaging. Find out why peak industry body Australian Organic Limited is hoping to make a change to the industry.
