Discover Organics 

Organic Week Aotearoa NZ has been set up by a collaboration of leading organisations within the organic sector that are at the forefront of organics.

Worldwide, organic is on the rise and this is no different in New Zealand. The nation is becoming more consciously aware of what we put into and onto our bodies. For one week every year, we aim to bind together the sector for a week-long campaign that will celebrate, educate and help kiwis really understand what organic is and what is available across the nation.

Our organic stories

New Zealand is enriched with organic growers, producers and retailers providing products as they should be.

Delve into their stories and find out why they are so great for the nation.

Growers

Produce products without animal testing, genetic modifications and pesticides in ethical working conditions

Producers

Ensure we know what's in our food, from farm to fork. The packaging must seek to be the most concious option.
