Ensuring every fruit and vegetable box that leaves their Stanthorpe packhouse is stamped with Australian Organic Limited’s The Bud logo underwrites a guarantee of trust between producer McMahon Bros Orchards and their customers.
Paul McMahon, who is fourth generation to the certified organic 323ha enterprise 250km southwest of Brisbane, said their growing buyer base, which includes large-scale supermarkets as well as bespoke farmers’ markets, was searching for certainty when it came to purchasing organic produce.
“For us, The Bud is essential as it gives our distributors and customers confidence in our product,” Mr McMahon said.
“Having The Bud on our produce means we have adhered to clear-cut guidelines from the Australian Certified Organic Standard (ACOS) and undergone regular audits to ensure our produce is up to standard. We are happy to meet these demands as we want to grow and deliver the best quality product possible to our customers.”
