Soil Association sourcing requirements updated

Soil Association sourcing requirements updated

The Soil Association’s ‘Sourcing Organic Ingredients’ annex has been updated to version 1.5.

This annex details the extra requirements that apply for products or ingredients certified to other organic standards. 

The main changes are:


  • updates to reflect that the baseline organic regulations in Great Britain and Northern Ireland are no longer the same. 

  • changes to section 5, as new poultry sourcing requirements (communicated in November 2021) have now come into force.

  • an update to requirement 9.2 Using Organic Additives in line with standards 6.4.1 and SA NI 6.4.1.
