Soil Association Accreditation

We are happy to announce that we have gained Organic Certification from the Soil Association.

Organic Certificate

Organic Certificate

 

Any food product sold as ‘organic’ in the EU has to comply with a set of Standards. Organic certification is a requirement to demonstrate a product or operation has met these legal standards. The Soil Association symbol is a recognised and trusted mark of organic certification internationally, and as a certification body we deliver certification to some of the highest organic standards.

Who is organic certification for?

If you’re processing or marketing an organic food or drink product, EU regulations require you to be licensed. The term ‘processing’ includes:

  • manufacturing
  • packing or re-packing
  • storing
  • importing (from non-EU countries)
  • wholesaling/trading
  • labelling organic products
  • selling loose produce or zero waste operations

Operations such as warehousing, storage and distribution will also need to be licensed if handling organic products.

What do organic standards cover?

Organic standards look at all aspects of organic food manufacturing and production, storage and sales. The Soil Association Certification organic standards cover the EU’s organic regulations (EC 834/2007 & EC 889/2008) and include some additional, higher standards in some key areas e.g. livestock production, GM, additives and packaging.

Suffolk Show 2019

Bee Kemball spoke to EADT last week after this years Suffolk Show, her last as Show Director.

“What a fantastic two days it has been.

The people are what make this show so great every single year, and that means everyone, from the volunteers, to the staff, to the people who come through the gates beaming with smiles.

It is important people understand the importance of agriculture, how it helps our lives – you should always know where your food comes from, and by doing so it helps keep things to the highest possible standard.

Coming to the end of her three-year tenure, Bee will hand over the baton to deputy director Bruce Kerr – but as she said, that doesn’t mean it will stop her from returning.

Just because I’m standing aside doesn’t mean I won’t be returning to the show I love,” she said. “Next year I suspect I’ll be coming along in my flip flops and sunglasses with an ice cream in hand.

I’ve been involved with the show since I was 18 years old, more than 30 years ago. I still love it just as much.

My father and grandfather were both stewards – the beautiful thing about the show is that it is a generational thing – for both staff and visitors, the joy of the show is passed on.”
