Foods with the “organic” label on them need to show the organic certification body, organic food packer or processor it is registered with.
Thus the label needs to at least have a code number which highlights the certification body.
The certification body’s logo or name can also be depicted on the label.
All ingredients do not come in organic form. Thus most of the time products cannot be 100% organic. So organic food manufactures utilise certain non-organic ingredients, given that organic ingredients comprise a minimum of 95% of the product.
Should the product have 70%-95% organic ingredients, all those ingredients may be mentioned purely within the ingredients list.
A label on the front of the product must clearly indicate the total percentage of organic ingredients.
