How often do you inspect organic farms?
Certification involves an annual visit by a qualified inspector to check that our licensees are meeting the organic standards. It is a legal requirement that each farm or processor, who is certified by us, is visited annually by our inspectors. We will check all of the farming and/or processing activities and ensure they meet our standards. We also do spot checks and unannounced visits to farms and processing and packing areas, as well as inspections in response to complaints.
