January 2016


A message from our Chairman

Happy New Year and welcome to an incredible jam packed year ahead for Australian Certified Organic producers and marketers. For those who thought 2015 was a high water mark for events, new mainstream promotions and a refreshingly new level of professionalism across our group in servicing the organic industry, the best is yet to come.

Andrew Monk 
Chairman, Australian Organic Ltd


Profile of the month

Three Peaks Organics grow organic blueberries in Holwell, Tasmania. The farm was already not using chemicals, sprays or fertilisers, so it seemed like a natural progression for them to become fully certified.

In the spotlight 

Meet Brynley King, Creative Director for Banaban Virgin Coconut Oil and Young Organic Leader 2015.
