The Soil Association is a charitable concern, which was set up in 1946. It is a registered body for auditing organic holding for certification for UKROFS. They comply fully with all relevant British, EU and International regulations on organic food production.

The standards they work to are reviewed regularly by a large committee of farmers, growers, manufacturers, scientists and consumers, who all have close contact with the organic foods industry. The Standards they work to cover all aspects of organic food production and marketing including processing, labelling, food distribution, record keeping and inspections.

The Association have registered a special symbol with UKROFS which producers are awarded who are found to comply with their standards. This symbol is shown above.

The Scheme covers agriculture, food processing, packing and distribution, and industrial manufacturers of composts, organic fertilisers and health care products.
