Have you ever asked yourself: What is the difference between organic and non-organic honey? Milk? Meat? Clothing?
The answers all lie within the newly launched free, downloadable consumer guide to the Australian Certified Organic Standard. The Standard is the most widely used in Australia encompassing the rules which apply to organic operators using the recognisable Australian Certified Organic logo, among others.
For the first time in Australia there is an easy reference guide to the Standards – a welcome alternative to the full version (a technically worded document spanning 125 pages).
The guide is preceded by a fabulous brief including “all those questions about organics you wanted to know but were afraid to ask….” and concludes with 20 good reasons to buy organic all backed by the latest peer reviewed research.
