The future of food is all around - and it’s contagious. Making choices to grow and consume sustainably is everyone’s privilege and responsibility. Sustainability meets the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future. And the deliberate care, attention and nurture of natural and human resources is of primary importance.
What does that look like? Safekeeping of land and natural resources involves maintaining and enhancing these vital resources for the long term. Protection of human resources includes consideration of social responsibilities such as working and living conditions of employees, the needs of rural communities, plus consumer health and safety, now and for the future.
A sustainable farm must protect biodiversity and healthy ecosystems along with showcasing economic viability. At the same time, our sustainable farms are compelled to foster the growth of vibrant communities - our food can’t come at the expense of human health and wellbeing. They exist to enhance it.
What is ASP Certified?
We have developed the Australian Sustainable Produce Certification to streamline a holistic and sustainable approach for conscious Australian farmers. It exists so that Australian farmers can communicate to consumers their desire to produce a highly nutritious crop that rebuilds rather than decimates the earth from which it comes.
It also exists so that consumers can make the conscious decision to choose sustainable. Simply look for the ASP Certified logo when buying baked goods and produce and you can be part of a global sustainability movement.
At the heart of the ASP Certification system is the use of natural fertilisers which deliver complete nutrition and build soil biology year on year. This means ASP Certified produce includes trace elements long-missing from the nation's typically over-farmed fragile landscape. Through ASP Certification, we're ensuring that those long-missing nutrients, vital to human health now end up on your plate. Enjoy!
