Certification is the only way to know that what you are buying is the real (organic) deal.

Our certification process

Biogro is New Zealand’s leading certifying agency for both local and export organic producers – that’s why we gladly choose to be certified by Biogro ourselves. The majority of Purefresh Organic growers are certified organic by Biogro too. There are other agencies to consider in all of this, Asurequality and OFNZ to name a few, but no matter which you go with, certified organic producers have to comply with very strict international standards (mostly endorsed by IFOAM www.ifoam.bio) and be audited annually by a third party to make sure that these standards are being followed. This process of becoming certified is costly and can take up to three years, you have to pay to get re-certified every year, but once fully certified you can use your certifying agency of choice’s logo.

You can trust that anything carrying this logo really is organic, no cut corners, just certified organic fruit and veggies.
