How do I know it’s organic?
We have been a certified retailer of organic fruit and vegetables for the past 15 years. As part of the certification process Organic Energy undergoes regular inspections by certification bodies to ensure standards are being met. When you visit the shop or shop online the product will be marked as organic, biodynamic or conventional. Conventional produce refers to produce that has not undergone any certification process, however this produce is often local produce that is grown without sprays and will be marked as such.
Certified organic and biodynamic farms undergo a rigorous and continuous process of soil testing and inspections in order be approved. Achieving certification can take many years but results in the highest quality produce available.
