TNZ Growing Products embraces organic certification - the world’s most widely-used, secure and impermeable traceability system.

BioGro is the most recognised organic logo amongst New Zealanders. It is the mark of a certified organic product and guarantees a product has been made without GMO, animal testing and the routine use of synthetic pesticides.

 



Every BioGro certified product can be traced back to its origin. For example using certification, we can pinpoint the exact field where an apple was picked or where sphagnum moss peat was harvested.

The organic certification process makes sure every stage in the ‘chain of custody’ between the producer and the consumer is secure and meets BioGro’s organic requirements. This certification process is what empowers consumers to trust organic brands.

How Biogro certification works?

The process includes checking a producer’s Organic Management Plan and conducting an annual audit. BioGro visit farms, packing facilities, warehouses, stores and manufacturing operations to make sure our practices meet organic standards and requirements. Only when BioGro’s organic requirements have been met does a producer receive BioGro certification.
