Soil Association Certification

Soil Association Certification

Certificate Description

The Soil Association Standards put the principles of organic production into practice.

These organic standards encompass EU Regulations 834/2007, 889/2008 and 1235/2008 (referenced throughout as the EU Organic Regulation). These regulations are the legal basis for the control of organic farming, food processing and organic labelling within the EU, and have been retained in the UK for implementation in GB.

For a food product to be labelled as organic, every organisation working up and down its supply chain – from farmers, to packers, to food processors, and organic retailers – have to meet organic standards and prove it to an organic certification body.

These standards were created by Soil Association, whose mission is to help everyone understand and explore the vital relationship between the health of soil, plants, animals and people. Campaigning, educating and helping everyone to “Grow Better Together”.
