USDA National Organic Program welcomes Bioactive for the 3rd year running
Three consecutive years of successful Certified Organic audits have solidified the Bioactive environmental credentials by approving Certified Organic status for the US & Australian markets. The US is currently the largest regulated global organic market for traditional medicine ingredients.
The US Department of Agriculture (USDA), after the third detailed on-site audit, granted Bioactive entry into the National Organic Program (NOP) and use of the coveted USDA Certified Organic seal.
The preparation and on-site audit of the Bioactive Plant Farms in the tropical North of Western Australia, was finalised in August 2013, July 2014, and again in Sept 2015. The process initially took over 2 years in the planning, but has now become an annual event.
The USDA standards require the integration of cultural, biological and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance and conserve biodiversity. This means that organic operations must maintain or enhance soil and water quality while also conserving wetlands, woodlands and wildlife.
Consumers globally choose to purchase organic products with the expectation that they are grown, processed and handled according to the USDA organic regulations.
This achievement adds another level of partner confidence in the Bioactive quality systems, flowing on to consumer peace of mind.
