BioGro! our organic story

December 01, 2020

'"organic" has been defined by the Ministry of Primary Industries as - avoiding or excluding the use of synthetic fertilisers, pesticides, antibiotics, growth modification and irradiation.' little world gained this organic description and certification through BioGro.

BioGro is new zealand’s largest and best-known certifier for organic produce and products. at the forefront of the organic movement, BioGro aims to simplify organic certification through innovation; a team committed to sustainability much like our team here at little world. their dedication to good products allows small businesses like us to display the country’s most trusted and recognised organic logo – the mark of a genuine organic product. their standards are high, through certification of over 830 producers and over 80 years of combined experience, we can count on them to tell us what’s right and wrong.

BioGro’s mission statement:

to enable a sustainable and ethical future for producers and customers.

 BioGro’s values:

  • integrity and belief in what we do.
  • a total commitment to and passion for organics.
  • care of our clients (certified licensees) and our staff and the environment.

as a small, new zealand made business, we have full respect and trust for the team behind BioGro. they are owned and operated by the soil & health association, who are the largest membership organisation that supports organic food, farming and production. after being established in 1941, they also one of the oldest organic organisations in the world. 

this organisation believes that new zealand will only be able to honour our ‘clean green’ reputation when organic principles are adopted at every stage possible – something we also believe in. if our communities can feel safe and secure in the products and ingredients used in their everyday lives, our planet will thank us. we use BioGro to provide this security for all mums, dads and little ones across new zealand.

through association with BioGro, little world can assure our loyal consumers that our brand is genuine - guaranteeing products in our skincare range are made without animal testing, genetic modification or synthetic pesticides. only nasties-free goodness will be put on your little one’s skin!
