Join us in celebrating 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, packaged food and beverages, cosmetics and skincare, home and garden products, textiles and even pet food!

Our 2023 Ambassador - Anthony Minichiello
Rugby league legend Anthony Minichiello turned to wholefood nutrition and organics when his career was at a crossroads in 2009, after four years of persistent injuries had him questioning whether he could continue.
A new attitude to nutrition and recovery helped him to repair and rebuild his body, allowing him to play injury-free until his retirement. ‘Mini’ is a qualified nutritionist and certified organic advocate, and we look forward to working with him during September.
Check out this video where Mini visits his parents on their family farm and tells the story of how organics was a gamechanger for his recovery and healing. You can also read more about his organic journey here.
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.
Why is certified organic a better option for you, for animals and for the environment? We’ll be covering four key benefits of organics across the four weeks of September.
