Organic certification is a certification process for producers of organic food and other organic agricultural products. Requirements involve a set of production standards for growing, storage, processing, packaging and shipping that include:
- avoidance of synthetic chemical inputs (e.g. fertilizer, pesticides, antibiotics, food additives), irradiation, and the use of sewage sludge
- avoidance of genetically modified seed
- use of farmland that has been free from prohibited chemical inputs for a number of years (often, three or more)
- detailed written production and sales records (audit trail)
- maintaining strict physical separation of organic products from non-certified products
- undergoing periodic on-site inspections
Fairtrade certification initiative was created to form a new method for economic trade emphasising equality in the marketplace. The Fairtrade organization forms a partnership between the consumer and the producer, and aims to eliminate other parties within the supply chain, and to make certain that the producers who take part in the initiative are not being exploited by buyers in developed countries.
Carbon neutrality, or having a net zero carbon footprint, refers to achieving net zero carbon emissions by balancing a measured amount of carbon released with an equivalent amount sequestered or offset. It is used in the context of carbon dioxide release associated with transportation, energy production, and industrial and agricultural processes. Our Assam black tea used in a variety of blends comes from the CO₂ Neutral certified tea estate.
