Certified Organic.

Australian Certified Organic (ACO) has taken action to ensure there is a unified and simple national approach to keep certified organic products non-GM.

The organic industry agreed recently not to approve an application from the Western Australian Department of Agriculture and Food for a level of adventitious presence of GM in organic products.

The National Standard for Organic and Biodynamic Produce already prohibits GM and Australian Certified Organic submitted a proposal to ensure uniform application across the certified industry and to give clarity and surety to our certified organic farmers.

ACO regularly and randomly tests products bearing its logo for compliance to its standards.

Any presence of GM would deem a product or a crop to be sold as conventional, not certified organic.
