Australian Organic Ltd (AOL) is Australia’s largest industry body representing over 2,000 certified organic operators in Australia and throughout the Asia Pacific region. AOL is a non-for-profit, member-owned organisation and the owner of Australia’s most recognised organic logo, the Bud logo, which is recognised by 51% of shoppers (Australian Organic Market Report 2019).
AOL produces Australia’s only report benchmarking the organic industry on an annual basis, and also hosts the nation’s largest consumer campaign celebrating certified organic products in Australia, Australian Organic Awareness Month (held every September).
AOL recently demerged from its subsidiary Australian Certified Organic Pty Ltd (now ACO Certification Ltd) (Australia’s largest organic certifier) on 30 June 2018. As a result of the demerge, AOL is able to broaden its horizons and focus on the organic industry as a whole, rather than being limited to supporting operators only certified by ACO Certification Ltd, and continues to invest in the protection, promotion, research and education for certified organic products, brands and businesses.
Additionally, AOL actively works with and lobbies to government agencies, including the ACCC, to have ‘organic’ regulated as a claim in Australia in order to stop misleading consumers.
