What makes ASP Certified better?
ASP Certified Produce delivers Healthy Soils, Healthy Food, and Healthy Communities.
ASP Certified produce is tested to ensure it is: ResidueFree, Non-GMO and independent emissions calculations on our wheat show 75% fewer Green House Gas emissions than conventional production.
We continue to test our certified products to ensure that we deliver food of the highest quality that is nutrient-dense, and monitor our farmer’s soils to ensure the practices in place, are building soil.
ASP Certified farmers understand and nurture the relationship between soil and plant health. They know that by building better soil health and nutrition, they produce healthier plants that are less susceptible to disease and insect attack.
What does this mean for you?
It means we deliver a fully traceable product with no nasties, but even better than that, you can be sure that the way our farmers are managing their land is environmentally friendly, sequestering carbon, building diversity, and an overall nutritionally superior product for you.
We build relationships and partner with Australian farmers and busineses who have sustainability and regeneration at their core values. Enabling them to supply fully traceable, clean, nutritious food, grown in a way that nurtures diversity and natural fertility in the soil to consumers that care about their food, their health, their environment, and the community as a whole.
The ASP Certified Standard has been developed by passionate farmers, agronomists, and natural resource experts who have worked tirelessly to create the ASP Certified Standard.
The Standard sets out the practices, procedures, prohibited inputs, and record-keeping requirements that ASP Certified members are required to adhere to, to produce an agricultural product of a superior nutritional value that continually improves soil health and resilience and is descriptive, not prescriptive, as we are outcome-focused.
The ASP Certified Standard reporting and documentation assists in taking food safety and traceability further by ensuring that all grain delivered to the processor can be traced back to individual fields of production. This guarantees the end-user “field to food” traceability.
The ASP Standard is a private standard that is aligned to Industry Best Management Practice. The ASP Standard is not available to all farmers but is voluntary to farmers who see value in growing ASP Certified produce under the ASP Standard this makes the ASP Certified Standard unique and exciting and sets a new level in regenerative agricultural production.
ASP Certified producers are active not only throughout the grains industry but also in grazing, dairy, poultry production, orchards, horticulture, and viticultural sectors.
