mean to us?
To us, it means integrity – the bedrock of our corporate and family values.
We searched for the highest standards to which we could hold our products up to, and found ECOCERT, one of the world’s largest organic certification organisations with a presence in over 80 countries. In order for a product to be certified by ECOCERT, we are required to comply with the strictest production standards at every stage: from sourcing to storage, processing, packaging, and shipping.
There are no shortcuts. Each certification is unique to a specific product, and NOT to the whole collection or brand. This means that every single product that carries the prestigious ECOCERT marque has passed its own rigourous test. And it doesn’t stop there.
The work to maintain this prestigious certification is an ongoing one, with regular audits to determine our continued eligibility. That’s why we are so proud to have maintained our certification consecutively, since 2009.
What does this mean for you?
Peace of mind.
