Australian Organic Limited’s Strategic Priorities
Australia is misaligned with global standards and is officially the last developed nation in the world to not have an enforced domestic standard for the use of the word “organic”.
It is Australian Organic Limited’s strategic priority to work with government and key regulatory bodies to deliver a fit for purpose regulatory process that is consistent with the organic export requirements.
This consistent approach to the organic industry will ensure Australia’s world-class organic standard will continue to grow market access internationally and provide Australian consumers with confidence when choosing products that claim to be organic.
Statement of Support
Australian Organic Limited believes legislation is the best way forward for consistent domestic regulation of the Australian Organic Industry. The statement of support gives people in the Organic Industry, whether they are operators, consumers or other stakeholders, the opportunity to show their support for the legislative option without having to prepare a submission for the Regulatory Impact Statement process set to begin in early 2022.
