Soil Association


About our Organisation

The Soil Association, formed in 1946, is the only UK charity which works across the spectrum of
human health, the environment and animal welfare. That’s because we cannot tackle these issues
in isolation.

We campaign for change, we support farming innovation, we serve healthy food in communities, we
support and grow the organic market, and we protect forests. We couldn’t do any of this without
our supporters, partners, donors and dedicated staff. We make a difference in the world
where it’s needed the most.

Soil Association Certification offers a huge range of organic and sustainable certification
schemes across food, farming, catering, health and beauty, textiles and forestry which are
recognised and trusted by consumers and businesses around the world. We’re the UK’s leading
organic certifier – you’ll find our symbol on over 70% of organic products.
