The Need for Certification Bodies

As a consumer you need to have total confidence in the claims made by suppliers like PGR Health Foods.  The Certification Bodies exist to ensure that our products are what we claim them to be.  In respect to Rizopia Organic Brown Rice Pasta they ensure the following:

  • That the rice crop is organic -OCIA
  • The Pasta is produced without risk of contamination from non-organic products -OCIA
  • That it comes from where we say it does -DEFRA
  • That we pay the correct duty and import taxes -DEFRA
  • That the product is traceable -DEFRA
  • That it is produced in a certified environment- BRC
  • Auditing PGR Health Foods –Organic Food Federation
