Join our organic family
Australian Organic Limited (AOL) is the leading organic industry body representing Australian certifiers and certified operators. AOL is a not for profit member owned organisation that advocates on behalf of the certified organic industry by lobbying government and driving awareness.
Established in 1987 and formerly Biological Farmers of Australia (BFA), AOL has been the major force in ensuring organic standards remain robust and are in line with global export markets.
Australian Organic is owner of Australia’s most recognised certification logo, The Bud. This logo is now recognised by more than 50% of shoppers and appears on nearly 33,000 products both domestically and internationally.
This increase in recognition is directly related to the ongoing marketing campaigns that drive awareness of certified organic products. September is our largest promotional month each year, Australian Organic Awareness Month (AOAM). AOAM was an enormous success in 2019 with all three major supermarkets being involved plus major independent health and supermarkets all around Australia.
