3 Australian Organic, a success story of 30 years. Australian Organic (formerly Biological Farmers of Australia or BFA) has always been a major force in ensuring that organic standards in Australia remain in the hands of the supply chain. Initially formed to progress the interests of farmers and processors who wanted to promote and protect the message of organic, including the setting of organic standards, the BFA moved on to develop an organic certification program to independently verify that farmers and processors were producing in accord with those standards. Australian Organic represents both organic and biodynamic (a specific form of organic production) farmers, and hence the broader term biological farmers was chosen as the group s name to promote a simple message that such farmers were using natural methods, not synthetic or unnatural methods, to produce their foods for consumers. BFA was registered as a co-operative in 1988, following key community and industry meetings across the country. In 2009, BFA changed its corporate structure to that of a company limited by guarantee. This allows Australian Organic to be recognised as an entity which is conducting its business nationally, with other benefits including reduced administration costs and greater assistance in operating on a not-for-profit basis. BFA changed its name to Australian Organic in 2012 to better reflect its activities. The Australian Organic head office is located in Brisbane, Queensland.

4 A message from our Chairman 2012: Fifth and current Chairman, Dr Andrew Monk. Dr Andrew Monk The year has been a massive one for the AOL Group, with major changes to governance and management. This is all about aligning our teams to best serve our members and clients with an efficient and high integrity certification service to protect our brand and logos, while leading industry with promotions and education of consumers on the value of organic and the bud. Change has been our hallmark as an organisation - as the industry has grown and developed - while ensuring we are focused on our members with skin in the game - unrepentantly delivering professional services that industry needs - rather than putting ourselves or financial gains first. Indeed we continue to ensure great returns on investment for our stakeholders, while continuing to rationalise and focus our certification and member services. We have proudly delivered another year of financial sustainability. We remain focused on looking after our farmers by keeping certification and IDL costs to a minimum as those with small and growing businesses get off the ground. We have also continued our program and focus of delivering one main logo for industry - with all our farmers having the opportunity to use the bud under the ACO certification programs we run. We equally have focused on playing the big game of promoting the bud and the value of organic to the mainstream with new ambassadors, a new PR team, investments in media and promotions like the industry has never before see. The benefits of this will be enjoyed for years to come. A heartfelt thankyou to our brilliant team for all your hard work and efforts - in particular a thanks to those staff who have seen us through some challenging years of recent times. You are the face of our group and the critical contact point for our farmers and other business people who rely on your dedication to be there at the right moment for them all. We end 2017 getting close to our aims of delivering on one National Standard, a well resourced National Standards Committee and related Council to Government, and close to completing the challenge of harmonising one voice to government. These steps are critical as we stare down a year ahead of our Federal Government, in a deregulatory mindset, reviewing whether to keep our standards and regulations post Together we will achieve this and we thank all active and engaged members and clients, our staff, management, directors and office bearers for the brilliant (and often voluntary) work you all do in making Australian Organic the success that it is for our clients and members. The level of growth in our industry is a clear sign that we must preserve what we have created - there is much to celebrate and much to look forward to in the months and years ahead.

5 A major force in Australian organics Gavin Dunn Founding chairman An over view of the development of the Biological Farmers of Australia during my seven year term as Chairman of Directors. There had been discussions between Organic and Bio Dynamic farmers about the need for a practical farmers organisation to encourage other farmers to look at and understand the advantages of non-chemical farming. It is interesting with the fourteen points outlined in the initial discussion paper, certification was not mentioned but issues dealing with farming and Governments rated highly. The initial meeting was held at Dubbo. Subsequently another meeting was held on 1st February 1987 and The Biological Farmers of Australia (BFA) was formed. There were seven Directors - Robin Curtis (Millmerran, Qld), Arthur Dakin ( Wirrena, Nyngan, NSW), Gavin Dunn ( Four Leaf Farms, Tarlee, SA), John Greenwood ( Mahonga, Cobram, Vic), Graham McNally ( Kialla, Greenmount, Qld), David Willams ( Demeter, Breeza, NSW) and Bernie Von Pein ( Hereward Farming, Dalby, Qld). I was elected Chairman with Robin Curtis as Secretary/Treasurer. Then the daunting reality set in with how do we start a national organisation, how do we arrange the finances to allow for growth and how to become relevant to the Australian farming scene. There was so much enthusiasm within the group of Directors and this was strongly supported by our wives. The Directors knew that for the new organisation to really go ahead we would need to take some very bold moves and hit the ground running. Our first public event was a Field Day held at Kialla property of Graham & Sandy McNally s at Greenmount, Queensland. This was an unbelievable success with approximately 1,200 people attending with some estimating this figure to be closer to 1,400. It was a daunting task to handle the crowd. We staged this event with very little publicity and were fortunate that we could successfully work on some free publicity and word of mouth. I remember the ABC sent out a crew to cover the event and they had only intended to stay for an odd interview. When they saw what was occurring they stayed the whole day. It was very fortunate they did as at that time many of the TV stations had a platform on the roof of their vehicles for filming. The platform on the vehicle the crew had on this day went the length of the vehicle and they were good enough to allow us to use the platform to run the Field day. I was also so proud of our large new banner BIOLOGICAL FARMERS OF AUSTRALIA. The success of this day with people wishing to join or contribute to our ideas was just fantastic and a real help financially. There had been a national issue which had been bothering most of the Directors which was the control the Australian Wheat Board (AWB) had of the internal market of wheat. All wheat sold at that time must legally be sold through the AWB. As some of us were selling or processing organic/bio dynamic wheat this was a real problem. We were required to get a fictitious weighbridge ticket and fill it in (I think it was six forms) and pay the AWB. I think it was $70/tonne without the AWB even seeing the wheat. We felt that this was a real injustice. It so happened soon after the BFA was formed the Federal Government had the Industries Assistance Commission evaluate the future of the AWB and wheat marketing. The Directors thought this was our chance so written submissions were put in. Then I personally fronted up to the Commission and stated our case and illustrated the paper work involved; I felt the Commission was very interested in our case. I will never forget how I was challenged as I was about to leave the building by people obviously from the AWB, stating what I had said was incorrect but I had all the forms with me to illustrate the issue. The up-shot from the Commission s findings was the AWB was then deregulated. I was gratified when The Hon John Kerin, Primary Industries Minister, personally thanked me for my input. I felt having the BFA organisation behind us and speaking on behalf of the organisation was a real asset. Arthur Dakin was assigned the work to come up with the most appropriate way to set the fledging organisation in a legal manner. After considerable evaluating Arthur recommendation to the board was that we register as a co-operative in the state of New South Wales which we did. It was also around this time Arthur took over the Secretary/Treasurer position as Robin Curtis found it difficult due to the growth of the organisation. 8 30TH ANNIVERSARY 30TH ANNIVERSARY 9

6 The Directors had a strong opinion that an easily identifiable logo was required. In this pursuit we engaged two people, one being very professional in the trade, to come up with suggestions. As can often be the case, when one is searching for something very special it becomes very trying which is what happened in this case. It got to the stage where we were seeing what we could come up with ourselves. Well one evening at home I was working in my office, my wife Rosemary was in an adjoining room doodling while watching the French Open on television. She called out in an excited voice to come and look at what she had come up with. This was the beginning of the BFA logo, now referred to as the Australian Certified Organic BUD logo. At one of our Board Meetings Graham McNally spoke of Dr John Reginald s work in the Washington State, USA which he had been reading about. John was scientifically comparing soils of organic and conventional farming systems in that state. Graham suggested we should bring him to Australia for a lecture tour and this made the Directors sit back and think; this was a very bold undertaking for the BFA. This was long before it became fashionable for American farm consultants to come to Australia. After considering the proposal and doing the sums on the financial side, the Directors thought it a sound business venture and it was decided to go ahead. Dr Reginald came and did a lecture tour of Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria where he spoke of his work in the USA. The meetings were very well received with a large number of people attending. The whole undertaking was a huge success. By this time people were staring to take notice of the BFA. The successes and the publicity we were receiving were actually making people think. We were getting inquiries asking why we don t have a certification arm as well. The Directors considered the proposition and felt there was a need for a practical certification body so we began on the development of such an undertaking. The part we did not realise was the large amount of work involved with such a program. There were many late nights taken up working on the standards and procedures. While many worked on developing the program, it was really the time David & Helen Williams put into the program. They worked tirelessly on all aspects and looking back I feel the BFA Certification could have floundered if it was not for David and Helen. David did a large proportion of the inspections and to verify this fact he turned over a million kilometres in his Subaru car with a large percentage of this on BFA work. While mentioning distances travelled, I ran up over 600,000 kms in a Commodore mainly on BFA work. I should point out that all the Directors gave their time voluntary initially until finances allowed all out of pocket expenses to be paid. Looking back life was rather rugged or I guess we made it that way often travelling long distances, not travelling slow, often at night and sleeping in the car. We were very fortunate to have good relation in the publicity area and one association we valued highly was with the ECO- AGE people being Jim Bowden, Miles Noller and Kendrick Rily. While this business published a very good newspaper, their main forte was in running two large conferences with the first being in Brisbane and the second in Melbourne. Each conference had international speakers and the BFA board assisted in some of the organising, as well people involved in the BFA being speakers. These two events were very well received and put the BFA even further before the public. Arthur Dakin was having trouble keeping up with the secretary/treasurer role so this task was taken over by Davina Greenwood (John Greenwood s wife). It was proving a problem keeping up with our growth. From the activity the BFA and other groups were generating the Federal Government began to take notice of the organic/bio dynamic industry. From this growing interest The Hon John Kerin, the Minister for Primary Industries, invited the organic/bio dynamic groups to Canberra. The main purpose of this meeting was to begin developing a national standard for the industry. This body became known as the ORGANIC PRODUCE ADVISORY COMMITTEE (OPAC) and met on a quarterly basis. We usually had two representatives on this committee. The standard created was really for export but it was used as a base for the home market; it was well received. At about this time four of our Directors being Arthur Dakin, John Greenwood, David Williams and myself had a lengthy meeting with the head of The Hon John Kerin s Department at Parliament House, Canberra. As I had previously been invited to speak to the Liberal Party I took up that opportunity after this meeting, I was so gratified with the reception I received. We had a change in our Directors with Graham McNally retiring and Don MacFarlane taking his place. Don was a Nuffield Scholar in his younger days and through this he had many contacts. From these he had developed a business taking tours to the USA. It was Don s suggestion we bring a very successful Orchardist, Paul Buxman from California to Australia for a lecture tour. The Directors considered the proposition and continuing on from the success of the Dr John Reginald event it was agreed. Paul came to Australia with his tour mostly concentrated in Queensland and although this tour was considerably lower key than our previous speaker, it still proved to be another success for the BFA. We were now having more and more contact with the USA and were spreading our wings as the saying goes. The Directors decided it would be worthwhile for me, a Chairman of the organisation to do a trip to the USA to meet with similar certification bodies. I met with the Organic Growers and Buyers Association, Farm Verified Organic and Californian Certified Organic Farmers, it was interesting to make these contacts. I think it was Robin Curtis that resigned as a Director and Tom Hackett was welcomed to the Board of Directors. As the work load kept increasing for the role of secretary/treasurer the Directors after consideration felt our finances were at the stage where we could employ a full-time person for this role. My daughter Helen Mickan took over this role and set up a computer solely for the BFA at our Tarlee office. After 12 months Helen went back to Four Leaf Milling and Debra Swan was employed. I said earlier about people doing voluntary work to get the fledging organisation up and running and then we got to the stage that out of pocket expenses were paid, it was quite a mile-stone when people were getting adequately compensated for their time factor. We also bought Peter Proctor over from New Zealand for a practical and lecture tour on bio dynamic farming. Peter had a strong influence on non-chemical farming in his home land. This tour involved South Australia and Victoria. Because of our activities and growth, we were noticed by the World Sustainable Agricultural Association (WSAA) who were based in Hawaii. We developed a good relationship with these people as did the Griffith University in Queensland through Dr Paul Saffigna. The WSAA were keen to have a major international conference here in Australia. Through their assistance, together with considerable input from Dr Paul Saffigna and the BFA, the conference was held on the Gold Coast. Because of the range of speakers, the conference attracted considerable interest by Government people. It was very well received. In recognition of our input Paul and I were invited for a study tour of Japan. This trip was absolutely top level as we had afternoon tea with the top level of the Japanese Government. We were even introduced at the Autumn Festival to a huge crowd of people. As it was an agriculture tour we visited research 1989: Establishment of the quarterly newsletter. stations. One occasion which comes to mind is we were scheduled to visit a research station but when we pulled up in front of a city building it made us think what is going on here? It turned out the research station was on the roof of this building. We always had interpreters at our side and we were certainly feted well. We were active in holding farm field days so we could illustrate as well as having knowledgeable speakers with most drawing good crowds. We also had stands at many events; some that come to mind are Seymour, Mudgee, Adelaide Show, Orange and Farm Fest. We had also developed good relations with Choice, media and various sections of the State Governments. The Directors were constantly considering how to improve the efficiencies of the organisation and one of the burning questions was about appointing a CEO to manage the BFA. This was going to be a big step. Greg West was appointed and the office was moved to Adelaide for Greg s convenience. It was at this time that I retired in 1994 and looking back it was such a remarkable period for what we accomplished, we had 570 Full members, 326 associate members, 345 certified producers, 19 allowed inputs, 41 certified processors and 7 certified Wholesalers. It was in 1989 that we began producing a quarterly newsletter so we could keep our membership informed of what was happening within the BFA and the industry. On reflection the BFA in those early days was fortunate to have so many people keen to assist us but the greatest assistance we received was from the wives of the original Directors. They were fantastic and we could not have achieved this level of success without their assistance. There are so many who were close to the BFA but did not hold a position that helped tirelessly, I was going to mention some names but that can be a dangerous area as I am sure to miss someone out but we were grateful for their assistance. Also on reflection and appreciation of the very large number of people we met and appreciated their sincerity to understand a nontoxic approach to food production.

11 Birth of the Bud The Bud represents everything that Australian Organic is about September 1989: Old news article. The Bud logo was initially designed in 1989 by Rosemary Dunn of South Australia, one of Australian Organic s early and still loyal members, while sitting around the Dunn s kitchen table. The bud represents everything that Australian Organic is about: The growth and promise of spring, the sign of big things growing from the initial organic movement, and the strength and logic of nature and natural (biological and organic) systems in guiding our choices in life. The bud is a registered mark with IP Australia and is the oldest Australian organic certification mark in the country still currently in use. Many other symbols and organic signs have come and gone through the last two decades of the organic industry s development in Australia. There are others, like in other countries of the world where organic products are traded, but none as recognised as the bud logo. Most importantly the bud represents Australia s leading certification program, Australian Certified Organic ensuring integrity of organic products in the marketplace for consumers. As the industry and the market is now maturing and growing with an ever-widening group of consumers, the bud simplifies choices because it s easy to recognise. It can be found on the overwhelming majority of certified organic products sold in Australia (over 80% of the market) and is the most recognised organic certification mark by consumers.

27 Meet the Goodwill Ambassadors of Australian Organic Here are the fabulous faces that give their time freely to spread the word about organics. Meet the ambassadors of Australian Organic. Australian Organic Schools Launched in 2010 and now used by over 200,000+ students, Australian Organic Schools is a totally free, online education curriculum that gives children the knowledge and skills to grow healthy food. It also teaches students about the benefits of organic for our health and the environment. It s one of the few intitatives that connect students to organic farmers and get inside food production. Lessons are aligned with the Australian Curriculum to integrate food growing into children s learning. Schools can register via www. organicschools.com.au to access the following curriculum-aligned resources: Your school garden Seven comprehensive units of work (including background information, lesson plans, activity sheets and extra resources) to help you start and maintain a school garden. Topics covered include planning, soil health, planting, mulching, watering, harvesting and much more. Organic for body, brain and bounce A unit of work (including background information, lesson plans, activity sheets and extra resources) aimed at educating students about good nutrition and the benefits of consuming organic produce. From the farm to me Two units of work, both including background information, lesson plans, activity sheets and extra resources. Organic farming introduces the process of becoming a certified organic producer and explains the ins and outs of organic farming. Where does my food come from? explores the origins of food and how it gets from the farm to people s tables. Case studies Here you will find case studies about various organic farms and producers. There is a video, lesson suggestions and activity sheets to accompany each case study. Costa Georgiadis Best known as the host of ABC s Gardening Australia, Costa Georgiadis is also a teacher, landscape architect and permaculturalist, who places a strong emphasis on sustainability. Costa has a passion for people, food and plants and believes anyone can be an organic gardener with a little planning and observation. Costa became an ambassador for the Australian Organic Schools program in The school garden program is probably the most exciting part of curriculum development for the future because the skills are simple and they build a real community thread within a school, he says. Therese Kerr Therese Kerr is an Australian Organic goodwill ambassador, mother of model Miranda Kerr, public speaker, founder of Divine By Therese Kerr and author of Lunchbox Solutions. She has a passion for organic and natural lifestyles and is an expert on common chemicals found in conventional beauty and body care products. After a health scare in 2002, Therese developed a keen interest in nutrition and wellbeing. There is a big difference between diet and nutrition. Diet is the food we put in our mouths; nutrition on the other hand is the nutrients our bodies derive from the food we put in our mouths. There is a tipping point where awareness will determine all purchases and we are slowly heading to that point, and that s exciting. Says Therese. Pete Evans Pete Evans is an Australian Organic goodwill ambassador, celebrity chef, health coach, restaurateur, media personality, author and more. His passion for fresh, healthy organic food led him to study nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York. My philosophy is simple the more great stuff you put in, the less room or desire there is for the bad stuff. I think eating real food is what it s about, Pete says TH ANNIVERSARY 30TH ANNIVERSARY 53
