Profile of the month

This month, allow us to introduce The Organic Farm Gate.  Australia’s largest group of certified organic farmers working together to plan, grow, pack and distribute a range of certified organic fruit and vegetables year round.

In the spotlight 

This month we are shining the spotlight on Pure and Green Organics Pty Ltd, manufacturers of the certified organic skincare brand zk’in.

Developed with advanced, clinically proven, certified organic ingredients chosen for both their outstanding performance and purity, the formulations feature a unique 100% natural preservative system.  

Australian Organic Annual Awards for Excellence

Congratulations to our outstanding finalists for 2015!
Testament to the growth and diversity of the organic industry is the volume and calibre of the nominations received in 2015, which has exceeded expectations, proving a very difficult task for the selection panel.

Those who have achieved finalist status are stand-out leaders in their sector and their entrepreneurial skills are underscored by their success. Not only were they outstanding candidates, but they also had to comply with the stringent requirements of the Australian Certified Organic Standard.

Winners will be announced at the Australian Organic Annual Awards Dinner on 27 November. This year, Zoe Naylor, who was also an Australian Organic Awareness ambassador, will be hosting the Annual Awards for Excellence.
