There are over 14,000 products that carry the Australian Certified Organic logo – your guarantee the product is pasture fed, free range, cruelty free, non GM and grown free from synthetic pesticides, herbicides and antibiotics.

When it comes to processed products, such as beverages, certified by Australian Certified Organic, the whole production process is certified organic. This means that where the ingredients have come from and how they’ve been processed is a healthier choice for you, your family and our environment.

Not only can you trust the organic claims of certified organic products, they also meet the ethical and fair trade criteria in the Australian Certified Organic Standard.

Australian Certified Organic’s Senior Certification Officer Jorge Larranaga says, “With organic certification, not only is the product grown and sourced organically farmers have been paid fairly due to the higher premiums organic certification provides a business.”

So you can be rest assured that imported ingredients and products like coffee and chocolate are sourced organically and look after worker’s rights.
