History of Australian Organic
Become a part of the bigger picture!
“Because the decisions we make and the projects we do are based on feedback from members. You can have positive impacts on the organic industry and your business.” Australian Organic Chair, Andrew Monk.
Australian Organic Limited is the not-for-profit, member-owned industry leader and go-to organisation for comprehensive organic services. Australian Organic owns Australia’s largest organic certification body, Australian Certified Organic (ACO) – the country’s leading certification body, represented by the Bud logo known to the majority of consumers purchasing certified organic products.
With a strong focus on education, Australian Organic also own the Australian Organic Schools program, which provides free curriculum resources to more than 250,000 students every single week, with a focus on educating students about organic farming, sustainable food and the development of school gardens.
We will continue standing tall for our farmers, resolutely focused on those with “skin in the game”: hard working farming families and organic business people, not those who want to play games with your livelihood.
