Demeter is the only ecological association that has built up a network of individual certification organisations world-wide. In 1997 Demeter-International was founded by 19 Demeter organisations from Europe, America, Africa and Australasia for closer co-operation in the legal, economic and spiritual spheres. Thus Demeter-International represents around 3.000 Demeter producers in 39 countries.
The Biological Farmers Of Australia (BFA) actively works to influence standards development, represent your views at government level, and support the growth of the Australian organic market. It provides assistance in market intelligence, exporting requirements, and development of contacts and networks.
Formed in 1986, NASAA (The National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia Limited), along with its subsidiary NCO (NASAA Certified Organic Pty Ltd), is Australia's leading Organic Certifier. Considered the most professional and efficient Organic Certifier in Australia and the Asia Pacific region, NASAA currently certifies approximately 900 producers, processors and retailers, and over 7 million hectares in Australia and approximately 7000 operators and cooperative based farmers in the Australasia-Pacific region.
