Lawsons True Earth's blueberries and vegetables

True organics

Lawsons True Earth2 Scott Lawson and partner Vicki Meech grow organically certified blueberries and vegetables for the organic retail market from their farm in the heart of wine making Hawkes Bay. They are passionate about the environment and about growing organic food.

True Earth produce is stocked in a number of organic food stores across the country as well as those discerning supermarkets that understand a growing proportion of the consumer market wants to buy organic produce.

As certified organic growers, the Lawsons believe in the guarantee that certification provides the consumer. Their produce is audited for organic certification by Bio-Gro. Uncertified organic products on the market can confuse the public by their claims of being organic. Lack of certification from a professional auditing organisation means there is no verification that produce has not been grown in soil that has chemical residues or that has not been sprayed with chemical sprays. Produce that is uncertified may be cheaper, but can still be marketed as organic. As consumer awareness grows we hope that stores will insist on no produce being marketed organic unless it is certified.

Lawsons True Earth fruit and vegetables has the stamp of organic truth.
