Use of the term ‘organic’

2 weeks ago | 1 min

For any product being made from organic ingredients and intended to be marketed as an organic product, the name of the food should still be ‘X Jam made from organically produced X’. An appropriate organic certification mark must be included on the label. Registration with an appropriate United Kingdom certification body is also required.

Further guidanceĀ ‘Labelling and describing organic food’, explains the extra legal controls that apply.
