Walker Logistics has been awarded Soil Association Certification. The award means that the company’s 250,000 sq ft multi-user logistics and online fulfillment facility in Berkshire meets the stringent rules laid down by the Soil Association for the storage of a wide range of organic products.
Founded in 1946, the Soil Association is the country's leading organic certifier and currently licenses over 70 per cent of the organic food on sale in the UK.
Products certified to the organisation’s standards can use the Soil Association’s organic symbol on their packaging to assure customers that what they’re buying is genuine.
“If you want the products that you make, store or sell to be labeled as organic, you must hold a legal certificate of registration for that product from an organic certifier, such as the Soil Association,” explains William Walker (pictured), sales director of Walker Logistics.
He adds: “Although Soil Association Certification is not mandatory or a legal requirement, companies across a wide range of sectors increasingly demand it from their supply chain partners and by successfully undertaking the Soil Association audit process we feel we have demonstrated our ongoing commitment to those companies who produce a range of organic products and seek a logistics partner with the same values.”
