Celebrating Organic Week NZ 2020

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, the collective 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.

You can learn more about Organic Week NZ here.

Below are our top picks in the Organic Category.

HARMONY stands for what’s good: sustainably farmed, restaurant-quality meat. We go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that our meat goes from paddock to plate with absolute care at every stage. How an animal lives adds more quality and flavour to the meat than any other aspect of the process, and our process is meticulous.

HARMONY’s Organic range is sourced from a select group of farms. They are chosen because they meet every criterion of sustainable farming and recognised animal welfare.

The brand's pledge has always been to offer meat from Certified Organic farms. It has full traceability from farm to cutting, to guarantee the cuts are certified organic. The organic farmers are not only farming to be organic but to be sustainable and caring to the environment.

Its animals are grass fed. No cages, no pens, only open paddocks.

HARMONY Organic Beef is sourced from organic farms across New Zealand. This premium quality meat is certified by ASUREQUALITY, ensuring organic authenticity.

HARMONY’s Organic Sirloin Steak is cut from the short loin and has a fine grain with an exterior of fat along one side.

Karma Drinks are proud to say that all of the drinks in our range are BioGro Certified Organic.
When something’s organic, it’s been grown avoiding the use of man-made fertilisers, pesticides and growth regulators. That means no nasties in its range of drinks, or in you after you drink them.
Organic farming methods work towards environmentally, socially and economically sustainable production — which is kind of what we’re all about.
All the ingredients the brand uses, from its raw cane sugar to its Sicilian lemons are organic, and even the stevia in its Switchel range is organically sourced.
"We believe that you should treat the planet like it’s your own backyard, which means choosing ingredients that have been grown with care. All ingredients found in Karma Drinks are organic or organically sourced, so you know you're making the best choice with your bucks."
On top of all the added benefits of consuming the organic ingredients in our drinks, you can also feel good knowing that money from every drink in the range sold goes back to Sierra Leone, so that with your help the brand is able to do more good in the world.

Bennetto organic chocolate is designed to be an elevated experience, delighting the senses and positively impacting your wellbeing and social conscience. Its range of 100g and 30g bars are made from entirely natural whole ingredients, with high cocoa percentages and free from soy, dairy or preservatives.  Creating good quality chocolate, at an accessible price point, while positively impacting the entire supply chain is at the core of all Bennetto Natural Foods products.
Its range of flavour combinations focus on highlighting the taste of its single origin cocoa form the Acopagro Cooperative in Peru. This means Bennetto can create a product from a small scale farming cooperative that nurtures and cares for their crops at a personal level. Because it is a real whole-food product and does not use artificial flavourings or additives to control the flavour, the chocolate can vary a little from batch to batch. It is also dependent on weather and growing conditions each year.
The newest flavour added to the range is a Salted Caramel in Dark 100g chocolate bar. Developing an organic vegan caramel made from almond butter, and no added flavour enhances has brought this salty delight to life. The smooth taste of organic dark chocolate paired with crunchy caramel pieces is perfectly balanced with a touch of salt. The team at Bennetto know this one will quickly become a top seller!
