These days we hear the words ‘natural’, ‘pasture-raised’, ‘cage-free’, ‘free-range’ and ‘organic’ used on a wide range of products that all appear to be saying the same thing. These ‘buzz’ words can lead to confusion and mixed messages when purchasing what you think is best for you and your family.
Australian Certified Organic (ACO) products displaying the ‘bud logo’ and are all non GMO, free to range, biodiversity friendly, sustainably fished, socially responsible, pasture fed, and of course grown free from harsh synthetic pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics and with no added hormones. When seeking out certified organic foods such as Inglewood Organic Chicken, you can be sure that we meet the highest standards of organic; verified with regular audits by ACO to ensure our farm is meeting these requirements. ACO has one of the strictest and most thorough certification programmes known throughout Australia, and internationally.
This video from ACO highlights what it really means to be certified organic in Australia and just what to look for when shopping to make the healthiest and most socially responsible choice. If in doubt, look for a certification logo (such as ACO’s bud logo) and a verified processor number. Each number is unique to the company it represents – Inglewood Organic is 4528.
