Organic Certification for Professional organic producers, processors and distributors
If you are interested in converting your holding to organic production or in processing, retailing or distributing a product to be labelled as ‘organic’, then follow this link for 5 easy steps and your application will be underway.
The Organic Trust is the centre of excellence when it comes to organic inspection and certification in Ireland. The very broad range of organic technical expertise available within our organisation is at your service.
The Department of Agriculture, Food & The Marine offers a range of financial incentives to assist those interested in getting involved in organic production. In addition capital grants are available for the purchase of specific equipment
The Organic Trust have made available a classifieds section on our site for Organic Trust members who wish to avail of this remarkable marketing facility.
The individual Member pages will also provide links to the members own specific website (if currently available). This section is primarily populated by our Processor members as they are involved in producing and/or distributing organic produce and products directly to the end-consumer - most of these companies already have their own established websites.
All of the companies featured on the Organic Trust website produce an organically certified product or products or provide an organically licensed service (such as Importer/Distributor of organic products). The Organic Trust have been very heartened by the increase in the number of companies who have now added an organic line to their product ranges. To find out what product or service is organically certified on behalf of each of the companies or entities listed, simply consult the detail in our downloadable membership listings (processor and producer). More precise information regarding the organic certification awarded to each company or individual entity can also be obtained directly from the featured companies or individuals.
Let us also not forget the hundreds of farmers and growers who work at the coal-face of organic production - many of these members do not have websites - they are too busy producing high quality organically certified raw material for our Processor members to either incorporate in an amazing range of organic produce and products or to package and distribute to a wide variety of outlets. We must acknowledge, therefore, that our farmers and growers comprise the backbone of Irish organic production - their dedication and expertise ensures that we have an ever-increasing supply of high quality organically certified organic produce for consumers to enjoy.
This section will be in a constant state of development as new members come on stream and as new websites emerge. The system will randomly select a member to ‘feature’ on selected pages on the website - all members being featured on a random basis.
Not all members wish to have their holding or business profiled on the website, therefore, the profiles are not an all-inclusive listing of Organic Trust certified operators. The up-to-date listing of all operators (producers [both in-conversion and fully organic], processors, retailers, distributors and so forth) is available from the Organic Trust office by phoning 01 8530271. This ensures that on any given date the most up to date listing can be accessed.
Organic licences are issued for a maximum period of one calendar year. Each licensee is obliged to apply for a renewal of their licence in January each year and some licensees - for a variety of reasons (commercial, personal, regulatory etc) - may decide not to renew their licence with the Organic Trust Ltd or may have had their licence revoked - thus they become 'lapsed members'. The related forms listing below sets out former Organic Trust licensees who are no longer in possession of a valid up-to-date licence.
