Shoppers can trust products labelled with the Australian Certified Organic Bud logo because certified businesses are audited yearly and products are also randomly tested for residues.

Australian Certified Organic tests over 100 certified organic products each year. In addition, Australian Certified Organic conducts unannounced audits and inspections of businesses.

The samples are taken from markets, small shops and supermarkets.

In the most recent round of testing, Australian Certified Organic tested products including corn cake thins, fruit bars, tea, drinking chocolate, sultanas, ground cumin, seeds and split peas for residues of synthetic agricultural chemicals. No samples tested positive to synthetic residues.

If in the unlikely event products show residues but are being sold as certified organic, Australian Certified Organic follows it up immediately with the retailer. If you have any suspicions or concerns about residues in organic products please contact us, anonymously or otherwise, on 07 3350 5716.
