CONTROL UNION CERTIFICATIONS, NATIONAL ORGANIC PROGRAM (NOP) INPUT
Agricultural products that are sold, labelled or represented as allowed for use on organic operations must be produced and processed in accordance with the Control Union Certifications Standards based on the National Organic Program (NOP) of the US Department of Agriculture. Control Union Certifications (CU) has inspected Biobizz products and found them to be in accordance with these standards. Control Union has certified Biobizz products as an input allowed for use on organic operations. Products labelled as ‘100 percent organic’ may only contain organically produced ingredients and processing aids, excluding water and salt. Agricultural products labelled ‘100 percent organic’ cannot be produced using excluded methods, sewage sludge or ionizing radiation.
GOOD SOIL QUALITY MARK
The Good Soil Quality Mark is an independent inspection mark for potting soil, soil improvers and fertilisers that guarantees product quality and ensures safe, contamination-free products. To make the grade, products must conform to strict requirements that apply to all raw ingredients, the production process and the final product.
The Point Vert symbol is used on packaging to show that the producer contributes to reducing the environmental impact of product packaging. Also known as the Green Dot, the Point Vert was founded in Germany in the early 90s to help educate people about environmental pollution caused by waste and to create a programme to help the environment recover. The programme is financed by companies contributing when they register to use the Green Dot or Point Vert. Biobizz not only produces organic fertilisers, we also care deeply about contributing to a better environment in any way we can. So naturally we’re registered under the Point Vert certificate and you’ll see the little green logo on all our product packaging.
The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) is an international non-profit organisation that determines which contributions are permitted for use in organic production and processing. OMRI’s staff is managed by a Council of Directors, which is widely representative of the organic industry: assessors, farmers, supplies, processors, traders, consumers’ organisations, and animal and environmental protection groups. Products from the OMRI list are suitable for use in foodstuff processing and organic production.
CLEAN GREEN CERTIFIED
Clean Green Certified is a third-party certification program modeled on existing national and international agricultural standards, ensuring environmentally clean and sustainable methods. It incorporates aspects of the USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP) international organic programs and sustainable farming practices. Products licensed to carry the Clean Green Certified logo contribute to the sustainability of farming. The certification is based on processing and handling standards, which certify Biobizz’ ability to keep organically, sustainably-grown product separate from product grown with synthetic pesticides. The Clean Green program allows Biobizz to be distinguished from the rest, with a label that stands for legal compliance, consumer quality and environmental stewardship.
