The real deal: when only organic will do

HOW TO IDENTIFY FOOD CERTIFIED AS 'ORGANIC':

* Check for the Organic Retailers' and Growers' Association of Australia notice, which should be prominently displayed

* Choose foods with the label 'certified organic' from one of the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment-accredited certifying organisations

* Check packaging for the grower's name and certification number

* Do not be fooled by packaging claiming the produce is 'natural' or 'chemical free' if the proper certification labelling is not displayed.
