Join us in celebrating all things certified organic!

September is all about raising awareness of certified organic products, brands and businesses by educating consumers about why choosing certified organic is so important, and encouraging them to look for organic certification logos on their purchases.

Australian Organic Awareness Month (or AOAM for short) is Australia’s largest campaign promoting the certified organic industry across all categories, including fresh produce, food and beverages, cosmetics, skincare garden products, house cleaning products, textiles and even pet food!

Certified Organic: what’s the difference?

You may not think twice when you pick up a product, but there is actually a difference between ‘Organic’ and ‘Certified Organic’ products. ‘Certified Organic’ products have been rigorously tested from the very beginning of their lives right up to the store shelves, and every step of the process has to adhere to a strict set of organic standards, such as the ‘National Standard’.

Did you know that currently in Australia there is no regulation around the term ‘organic’ on product labels? Find out why we’re hoping to make a change to the industry in 2020.
