How Can You Tell If Food is Genuinely Organic

There are over 380 organic certifiers around the world. Many products manufactured overseas and imported into Australia claim to be 'organic'. But how can you tell if food is genuinely organic? Look for the bona fide organic certifier's logo and number on the label. For international products it is important to look for an international certifier's logo and processor number. In Australia, look for the 'Bud'. It is Australia's main certification mark, appearing on the majority of organic food. Shop at a reputable organic retail outlet. Ask for proof, anyone selling genuine organic produce can prove it and would be happy to do so.
