GREEN BRIDGE ORGANICS IS PROUD TO BE SOIL ASSOCIATION-CERTIFIED!

GREEN BRIDGE ORGANICS IS PROUD TO BE SOIL ASSOCIATION-CERTIFIED!

As Green Bridge Organics gets its Soil Association certification this year, we thought we’d explain why organic certification is so important…

WHY CHOOSE ORGANIC-CERTIFIED FOOD?

  • All organic products come from trusted sources
  • Whatever you’re buying, when you choose organic, you choose products that have been produced to the highest standards
  • Food you can trust – organic food must be certified by law, so you can be assured that the product and ingredients come from verified sources
  • The standards for organic food are laid down in European law, so a licence is required to grow, process and market organic products, plus all organic farms and companies are inspected at least once a year
  • All organic farms and food companies are inspected at least once a year. The standards for organic food are laid down in European law, and in places, these are exceeded by the Soil Association’s stricter standards
  • Soil Association certify over 70% of organic food in the UK, and all organic farmers and processors are inspected at least once a year – it is the most rigorous of any independent food standard audit process, so the organic label is the best way of assuring that the food we eat has been produced to a standard you can trust
  • Wherever you see the organic symbol, you can be sure that the food has been produced to the highest standards
  • Organic certification and labelling is agreed nationally and across Europe, and is a guarantee of food quality, independently inspected and certified all over the world
  • Choosing organic means that you are supporting farming practices with a more traceable production process and you’ll always know what’s in your food
  • It means higher levels of animal welfare, lower levels of pesticides, no manufactured herbicides or artificial fertilisers, and more environmentally sustainable management of farmland and the natural environment – this means more wildlife!

So look for the logo, and trust in…

  1. Fewer pesticides
  2. No artificial colours or preservatives
  3. Always free-range
  4. No routine use of anti-biotics
  5. No GM ingredients
