What does it take to be certified Organic?
In Australia, the word “Organic” is an important one and not to be considered lightly. Achieving certification as an accredited Organic product is not an easy process and you should always check the products you purchase have achieved at least one of the following certifications.
Dual Organic Certification
We have proudly obtained, not one but two organic certifications. Through Australian Certified Organic (ACO), as well as National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA) our dual certification ensures our products have achieved Australia’s high standards for organic farming. These third-party organisations conduct audits to ensure our farming and production practices meet organic requirements.
Principles of Organic Farming
In addition, the guarantee of no genetically modified products (GMO’s) and no chemical residue, becoming accredited as an organic farm requires important principles to be followed. These include being committed to producing high-quality products and using farming techniques which reduce reliance on inputs and create a more natural approach to farming. All of which contributes to a better environmental impact on land and soils.
Organic Milk is a Precious Source
According to industry studies, less than 1% of the world’s global dairy production is from organic milk, In Australia only 0.6% of milk production is organic, and in New Zealand, this is halved to only 0.3% milk production is organic¹. Organic milk is truly a rare and precious source!
