A Gateway to the Organic Industry – NASAA’S New Website
Access to the organic industry has just become a lot easier with the opening of our new website – a gateway into the world of organic food, fibre and cosmetic production – www.ncocertifiedorganic.com.au.
Glenn Schaube NASAA Chair said, ‘The new online facility will serve as a knowledge source for organic information in promoting the benefits of organic food production, farming and sustainable agriculture.
Offering a user-friendly experience and intuitive navigation, www.ncocertifiedorganic.com.au provides a wealth of information for those already involved in organic production or interested to learn.
‘Visitors will find information about buying organic, organic learning and how to get involved in the organic sector. It is a dedicated resource for organic shoppers, home growers, conventional producers interested in organics; and certified operators within Australia and overseas,’ Glenn Schaube said.
About the new organic gateway
Included in the organic gateway are two well defined sections.
1. The NASAA Organic section outlines organic educational information and services to assist those interested in becoming involved with organic and sustainable foods, fibres and cosmetics production. This educational resource is for the whole organic community from producers to manufactures, students, consumers, home growers and traders.
