Who we are
Our Certification Business
Soil Association Certification is the UK’s leading organic certifier. We offer a huge range of organic and sustainable certification schemes across food, farming, catering, health and beauty, textiles and forestry.
For all schemes we operate, we are an impartial and non-discriminatory control body responsible for ensuring compliance with the respective standards. For more information you can read our impartiality policy.
Soil Association Certification are a leading certifier for schemes ranging from Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), COSMOS to Food For Life Served Here, and work with a huge range of businesses. Whatever you do, certification is the best way to prove you’re operating to the highest standards of sustainability and integrity.
We also offer inspection services for other schemes, such as British Retail Consortium (BRC) and SALSA. Becoming certified sends a clear message to an ever-growing number of conscious consumers. It shows their products are environmentally and socially responsible, fully traceable and made with the highest integrity.
Better business, a better world
Soil Association Certification is the wholly owned subsidiary of the Soil Association - we’re part of a charity with a mission. When you certify with us, we make sure your interests are represented. Together Soil Association and Soil Association Certification are in constant dialogue with other standard setters, certifiers, and industry groups and movements both in the UK and internationally.
So, when you join us, you're supporting our drive for healthy, humane and sustainable food, farming and land use. Profits from our certification services are gift aided to the Soil Association charity to fund their game-changing work. Work that is transforming the way we live, farm and grow; all of which is made possible by you becoming certified.
