Our accreditations allow you to get global market access for your organic products.

AsureQuality certifies to:

IFOAM

We are accredited by IFOAM (International Federation Organic Agricultural Movement), the world’s leading organic organisation.

To ease product acceptance for the AsureQuality Organic Standard we suggest that imported product is certified under an IFOAM accredited programme.

Refer to the listed of accredited Certification Bodies (external link) .

MPI

We work with New Zealand's Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) to provide the required third party assurance, where government to government official assurance is required.

Any operator exporting to the regulated markets covered by the Official Organic Assurance Programme (OOAP) is required to register with MPI as an organic exporter, and declare each consignment through the use of an export certificate request.
