The Organic Trust was founded in Ireland in 1991 by a core group of dedicated organic producers including some of the pioneers of organic production in Ireland. The Trust was established as a voluntary non-profit making organisation to provide a credible system of organic inspection & certification on which the consumer can depend. The overall aim or mission of the organisation is to maintain the integrity of food labelled as 'organic' and to assure the consumer that organic food carrying the Organic Trust logo was produced in compliance with strict organic standards. High standards of organic production and an inspection system built on a very detailed knowledge of organic production are the pillars of the Organic Trust.
