What does Organic, Certified Organic and Biodynamic mean?
Organic is the way in which plants and plant materials are grown and/or processed. It refers to stringent standards and regulations that ensure that no synthetic chemicals, fertilisers, pesticides, growth hormones, growth regulators or herbicides are used; that the plants and/or plant materials used are not Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs); and that the environment and animal welfare are respected.
Biodynamic standards are even more stringent, in that Biodynamic farmers rely on particular plant, animal and mineral preparations and the rhythmic influences of the sun, moon, planets and stars.
Certified Organic/Biodynamic means that the buyer of any organic produce or product can be assured that the above standards have been met. There are seven Accredited Organic Certifiers in Australia. To be sure you are buying certified organic, buy it off us or be sure to check the logo!
