Soil Association Certification Journey

Soil Association Certification Journey

We are certified by the Soil Association

The Soil Association is the UK’s leading organic certification body. Who work with farmers, growers, processors, manufacturers, retailers and caterers to promote and support organic food and farming. Organic certification is a voluntary process that businesses can choose to go through to show that they meet the high standards required to be certified organic. As consumers, it provides reassurance that the products you are buying from us has been produced to high standards.

For us, the decision to become certified was a no-brainer, it was a long journey, but we think it was worth it. Our business is committed to providing our customers with the highest-quality products and providing them with the assurance that our offerings follow the strictest ethical and environmental standards.

Becoming certified by the Soil Association was an opportunity for us to demonstrate our commitment to providing safe and sustainable products. There is no guarantee that a product marketed as organic contains anything more than the tiniest speck of anything organically farmed, therefore it is imperative that you read the ingredients list carefully in order to be able to make informed decision. During our development process it has become apparent as to how many products there are out there using the “organic” term, but did you know that to use this term a product only needs to contain 1% organic ingredients. Certified organic products contain the highest possible % of ingredients that are organic.

Certification also allows us to provide our consumers a viable alternative choice when it comes to protecting your pets, horses and the environment with the choices we all make and the products that we buy. Certified organic products do not contain hidden pesticides, synthetic ingredients, nano particles, genetically modified materials or anything we feel may do you, your animals or the planet harm.

When making choices, try asking yourself the following questions :

  1. Is this as organic as possible? Remember water, salt and clay are not “farmed” so cannot be termed as organic.
  2. Does the ingredient list clearly show which ingredients are certified organic?
  3. Are there good levels of organic ingredients? Remember ingredients are listed in order of content, with the greatest first.
  4. Does the company have a relationship with an independent organic certification body, for example the Soil Association?

As a certified organic provider, we know that being monitored ensures our business is adhering to the standards set forth by the Soil Association, and we can be assured that all our products are being produced in the safest and most sustainable manner possible.
