The annual organic certification of our work

In addition to our internal control system for ensuring the high quality of our organic spices, the compliance with the organic guidlines is annually checked by the independent certification company LACON. This year the organic inspector Michael Bessei  traveled again from Germany to Zanzibar for this purpose. He carried out the organic inspection together with Ramadhan Othman, the local LACON inspector.

The team of 1001 Organic accompanies the two inspectors to the farms, where the first part of the inspection is done. On the farms the inspectors are looking for the compliance with the organic guidelines and searching for undesired substances like chemical fertilizers which are not allowed in organic spice cultivation.

The team together visits the stores and the manufacture center. Also in these places the compliance with the organic guidelines are verified and the detailed documentation about all activities around the spices is examined.

Again our work has been certified by the independent certification agency LACON. We are very happy to have received our new organic certificate.
