JJ Organics is the first farmer to commit to Organic Public Guarantee System (PGS)
Jacques Olivier signed the Green Road PGS pledge on Thursday 9th June, a significant day, not least because the commitment to organic transparency and traceability was made on his birthday.
The PGS is an assurance system that guarantees adherence to a set of organic principles that has been agreed on by Green Road farmers, consumers and retailers. The system is transparent, open to public scrutiny and peer driven.
The Green Road ™ in Stellenbosch, Cape Town, makes a significant difference by providing a new business engagement model that allows consumers to offer a fair price for REAL FOOD out of a clear understanding of the costs to the farmers.
“Know your farmer…. know your food.”
Please remember to support their farmers by ordering their weekly organic bags on http://www.greenroad.co.za. Should you wish to find out more information on the Green Road, please phone Priscilla on 021 007 1800 or 072 688 1310.
