Standards

No system of farming has higher levels of animal welfare than organic farms working to our standards. Our organic standards use the EU organic regulation as their baseline, but in many cases our standards are more robust.

From time to time, we hold public consultations on our standards. We encourage you to get involved and participate in these consultations.

The current version of the standards are organised by sector below:

Farming and growing standards

If you are a feed manufacturer the standards you need to comply with are chapters 40 and 41 contained in the food and drink standards, and standards 10.13.37 and 10.13.38 in the farming and growing standards.

Food and drink standards

If you are a seed processor the standards you need to comply with are chapters 40 and 41 contained in the food and drink standards.
