Organic Standards

Zimbabwe Organic standards are a national standard and hence the document sits with the Standards Association of Zimbabwe (SAZ). The document is also recognised by IFOAM Organics International and therefore falls under the IFOAM Family of Standards.

ZOPPA Trust offers training in:

  1. Organic Standards knowledge, application and compliance
  2. Setting up of a Participatory Guarantee Scheme (PGS) which is a local organic  compliance system
  3. Setting up internal control systems in preparation of third party certification

ZOPPA has a registered label called Zim-Organic that is used to distinguish PGS certified organic produce on the shelf. The label can be accessed by PGS certified organic producers.

Another registered label, Zim Natural, is available for use by producers in conversion.
