Australian Organic Ltd (AOL) is the leading representative body for the organic industry. Established more than 30 years ago, AOL was created by industry for industry.
AOL demerged from its subsidiary Australian Certified Organic Pty Ltd (now ACO Certification Ltd) on 30 June 2018. As a result of the demerge, AOL is able to broaden its horizons and focus on the organic industry as a whole.
Australian Organic continues to work on our most pressing goal on behalf of our members by continuing strategic discussion on the pathway to Domestic Regulation. Australian Organic has presented submissions to the ACCC for non-compliant products labelled “organic”, and we actively advise consumers to look for certification marks on their organic products. Domestic regulation will also assist in obtaining equivalency within the organic export market.
We will remain active in prosecuting the need for domestic regulation with both federal and domestic government departments.
Our Strategic Plan is to Protect and Promote the interests of the industry, and continue to Engage and Consult with government and key sectors to understand and address our industry’s needs and challenges.
