A product that is certified organic contains only organic ingredients and has had certification to prove this is the case.
Organic products are free from any synthetic additives, they are grown under conditions that avoids the use of man-made fertilisers, pesticides, growth regulators, GMO’s, and feed additives. It is not only about what is or is not sprayed onto our food but is a style of farming where the health of the soil in which the products are grown in and the environment in which they are grown in is just as important as the nutritional value of the end product.
Organic food is produced in a way that supports the environment, the farmers and surrounding livestock.
There are strict standards that need to be adhered to when farming organically and products with Organic certification must undergo checks and audits by a trusted agency. Every aspect of the farming process must be compliant, from growth through to production and finally packing.
The BioGro organic certification is a mark of a genuine organic product. It is internationally recognised and is the most trusted organic logo in New Zealand. It enables consumers to know whether a product is genuinely organic without the uncertainty of greenwashing.
