Finding solutions to concerns we all share about the health of our planet and its people


Organics aren’t just about keeping our food and bodies free from modification or synthetic fertilisers and pesticides. They’re a holistic way of life, helping support farmers, empower communities, build healthy soils and combat climate change.

Organic practices are the foundation for preserving precious natural resources, caring for animals, ecosystems and biodiversity, and offering a sustainable future for the planet. For example, nourishing soil instead of forcing growth with synthetic fertilisers creates more nutrient-rich food – and studies have shown that organic fertilisation works to draw large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere.

It’s proof that wonderful things happen when you work alongside the genius of nature.


People from all walks of life choose organic food to avoid the sprays and fertilisers used to grow mainstream produce. But the benefits go far beyond that!

Organic farmers can’t rely on synthetic products to force growth (or keep pests at bay) so instead, they need to work alongside nature. They focus on deeply nourishing their soils, growing diverse crops and using time-tested methods to minimise pests and disease.

Avoids nasty chemicals

According to the Soil and Health Association, residues from many pesticides can still be found on products. Organic foods are the best way to avoid any risk of adverse effects from these chemicals.


Organic food is always free from genetically modified inputs that may carry a risk or harm to our health.

Strengthens communities

Organic products tend to be grown and made by smaller producers, so when you buy organic you’re supporting a network of growers, their families and their communities.

Cares for the earth

Organic farmers help protect waterways, soil and air from the damage caused by synthetic sprays and additives. This has positive flow-on effects, supporting habitats and biodiversity. Organic fertilisers also help protect against erosion and remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

Cares for farmers

Many fertilisers and pesticides banned in New Zealand are still widely used overseas. Buying organic helps support farmers to avoid using these dangerous chemicals.

Nutrient-dense, tasty produce

Organic food grown in healthy, nourished soil is nutrient-rich and bursting with flavour.


We hold ourselves and our suppliers to the highest of standards.


Organic producers eliminate the use of synthetic pesticides, and the Soil and Health Association says residues from many types of pesticides have been found in recent tests of food that is not grown organically. Buying organic is the best way to avoid potentially adverse effects pesticides– but also to avoid genetically modified inputs that may also carry a risk of harm to our health. Avoiding these not only benefits organic food buyers, but the grower and their workers, too.
