Certified Organic Guarantee
Our products are not just organic, they’re certified organic - and there’s a big difference.
‘Organic’ simply means ‘containing carbon’ - which on Earth, is just about everything. Calling your product ‘organic’ is an easy way to tap into marketing trends, without necessarily backing it up with good practice.
In contrast, wherever you see the Certified Organic symbol on the Austral site, you know you’re getting the real deal.
Our certified organic herbs, spices and teas are just that - ACO-certified. This means they’ve been grown without the use of synthetic or toxic substances for a three-year minimum period - and contain no added artificial colours or fragrances.
The term ‘Certified Organic’ is overseen by a number of internationally recognized bodies, and Austral is audited each year to guarantee organic integrity and strict certification standards.
So, the next time someone says their product is organic, say - sure, it contains carbon… but is it certified?
