Pacific Organic Standard – Crops
Pacific Organic Standard - Crops
The Pacific Organic Standard aims at setting requirements for organic production including plant production, animal husbandry, beekeeping, collection of wild products and aquaculture.
This standard provides processing and labeling of products, a mechanism to define the expectations for organic production. When complied with, it also enables producers to label their products as organic.
The Pacific Organic and Ethical Trade Community (POETCom), developed the ‘Pacific Organic Standard’ (POS), for the Pacific Region which is in the process of seeking equivalence with the European Union’s (EU) organic standard and will then pursue equivalence with Australian Organic Standard (AOS), National Organic Program (NOP-USDA) and Japanese Agricultural Standard (JAS).
