Welcome to BioGro!

We are New Zealand’s leading independent organic certifier. Our logo has become synonymous with certified organics and it appears on many well-known brands and products seen on retail shelves today.

BioGro is the certification arm owned by the New Zealand Biological and Producers Society. We were founded in 1983 to protect both consumers and the word ‘organic.’ In New Zealand, there is no protection around the word organic and anyone can claim their products as organic or natural even if they’re far from it. 

Our members carry our trademark on their products so consumers know that the organic produce they buy is genuine and truly free of GMO, synthetic pesticides and other chemicals, animal testing and are ‘good for you’ in every sense of the word.

We have developed our own certification standards which are trusted throughout the world. We have also taken steps to gain international accreditations so we can continue providing overseas market access to our members. We now carry eight international accreditations. We're really proud of that.
