IOAS Growing Organic Trust project
The first session on "Growing Organic Trust" the long-term initiative spearheaded by IOAS took place at BioFach, Germany 2019.
Organics has grown dramatically in the last 40 years. Growth and success has brought new challenges, new opportunities but also threats.
The IOAS 20th Anniversary Seminar, ‘Organic Inspection and Certification 2025’, held in India in November 2017, brought together key actors from the organic sector to explore and discuss the status of organic inspection and certification, with the aim of identifying deficiencies and developing an action plan to help tackle them.
The Biofach session was the first step to engage with all sectors of the organic movement to further strengthen the integrity of organic certification, to reward good performance and to combat fraud.
We have had lots of positive feedback and interest from many parties and are now reviewing the next steps required to further the Growing Organic Trust project.
Further information if you missed the session is available on our website along with the full Improving control report.
