At Izmir Organic, our certifications are more than papers that we hang on our walls. They pervade every aspect of our work and form an integral part of our corporate culture.
We make sure that the rules and principles prescribed by each certificate translate into action by establishing systems that foster compliance.
We also ensure that these rules and principles are understood and implemented by every person involved in our work through continuous education of our staff, suppliers and customers.
Our factory has been certified organic since 2012 by the CCPB certification body in compliance with the standards set by the European Union (EU), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Canada Organic Regime (COR).
We spare no effort in ensuring that our organic certification guarantees products of the highest quality and reliability.
This means going above and beyond the organic certification of our suppliers to test every batch of raw material we receive, using large samples, in order to ensure that the raw material is organic and pesticide-free.
We are proud to be certified by Sedex, a leading ethical trade membership organization. Our Sedex certification testifies to our commitment to ensure humane, fair and safe working conditions for everyone involved in our company’s activities.
At Izmir Organic, we believe in sharing what we earn with all those who work with us. We ensure that working hours are decent and that overtime is fairly compensated, while making sure that it stays within prescribed limits.
We use every opportunity to take stock of the challenges faced by our workers and suppliers and value the relationships built with them over the years. We are privileged to have had most of our labor force working with us for more than 5 years, and we treasure their experience as it reduces the likelihood of problems occurring during production.
Our Sedex certification attests to our dedication to operate responsibly, to abide by labor and public laws and to honor our contractual obligations.
