How can Producers get involved this Awareness Month?

Are you a certified organic producer, or looking to become one?

Australian Organic Awareness Month (or AOAM for short) is all about supporting the certified organic industry in Australia. As a producer, certified organic or not, there are so many ways you can get involved this September.

For conventional producers, you can begin by learning more about becoming certified organic, including organic standards and the certification process.

For certified organic producers, you can get involved by educating consumers on why certified organic is the better choice, explaining the importance of looking for organic certification marks, and letting them know where they can buy your certified organic produce.

We’ve put together a few simple ways you can get involved.


Help to Educate Others About What You Do

As a certified organic producer, you know best! You know how much time, effort, love and care has been put into producing certified organic products. You also know how your efforts have helped to produce products that are a better choice for your customers and the environment.

If you have a website or social media, try including some information about how your certified organic farm operates and how your products are made. Australian shoppers are becoming increasingly more aware and concerned about where their purchases come from, so giving them an insight into your business will help to build trust and transparency.

You can also let them know about the importance of certification marks and the difference between certified and non-certified organic products.

You can also let shoppers know where they can buy your products, or if you attend local farmers’ markets. If there is anything shoppers love most, it’s knowing where their products have come from, meeting the people behind them, and learning to appreciate just how much time and effort goes into making them.
