Announcement – organic certification awarded

Southern Cross Certified have awarded Aileron Pastoral Holdings with organic status for livestock and pasture.

Aileron Pastoral Holdings is celebrating a significant milestone in its journey to expand and develop the operations of its Northern Territory cattle station, achieving Organic Certification from Southern Cross Certified in August 2023.

After receiving its initial “Organic in Conversion” status in October 2019, the farm withstood the dual gauntlets of drought and a global pandemic, to now be awarded Organic status for livestock and pasture.

Station Manager Erhard Eins praises that the team have worked tirelessly over the last four years to have the property recognised as an operation with strict organic standards without the use of banned chemicals or synthetic inputs.

“This success allows us to open new doors and opportunities, and to be able to cater to markets which were previously inaccessible without meeting the national standards required for Organic and Bio-Dynamic produce,” noted Craig Astill, CEO of Caason Group.

The organic status achieved by Aileron is recognised by the USDA and complies with its National Organic Program (NOP), meaning there are new opportunities for Aileron in the United States market.
