What does BioGro’s logo mean? It guarantees that the highest organic standards have been met every step of the way i.e. products have been produced in accordance with our internationally recognised Organic Standards. These standards exceed the New Zealand government certifier’s minimum requirements for organic food in many areas, especially in relation to GMO's, the use of pesticides and conventional animal health treatments. Our goal is to promote the highest of organic integrity. We achieve this because we are an independent organisation.
