Welcome to BioGro!

We are New Zealand’s leading organic certification agency. Our logo is synonymous with certified organics. It appears on many well-known organic 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 producers, consumers and the word ‘organic.’ New Zealand is an unregulated organics market which means anyone can claim their products as organic or natural even if they’re far from it. 

Our licensees carry the BioGro logo on their products so their customers know that the organic produce they buy is genuine and made without GMO, animal testing and the routine use of synthetic pesticides and herbicides. 

BioGro's certification standards and programmes are trusted and recognised throughout the world. We have taken steps to gain international accreditations so we can continue providing overseas market access to our clients. We now carry nine international accreditations.
