Australia has the most organic land in the world!

Posted by

There is currently 22.69 million hectares of land area in Australia under organic farming, the most of any country in the world! There was a 53% increase in fully certified organic land area in Australia between 2011 and 2014. 

Surveys from the 2014 Organic Market Report have shown that there has been a significant increase from 24% to 40% in organic purchasing amongst those who would not normally be categorised as green or sustainable shoppers. This is testament to the growing awareness of organics in Australia. Keep up the great work guys! for our health and the sustainable future of Australia :-)
