We state which ingredients in our product are organic on our tin base label. For these ingredients we have certificates from the supplier to prove as such. Our buying team spend a lot of time researching and visiting our suppliers to make certain these ingredients are grown by organic means.
Other ingredients may at some times be organic, depending on their availability. We take various environmental aspects of each ingredient into consideration at any time. For instance, if a non-organic version of an ingredient is available just down the road, do we fly in an organic version from halfway around the world? A tricky predicament, but we do what we can.
For this reason we only list ingredients as organic in our products when we can guarantee that they are organic 100% of the time. Our buying team is continuously working on ensuring that more and more of our ingredients can have a guaranteed organic and fair trade status. This is a work in progress.
