What we liked most about this Indian organic food store was their appetite for ethics, or so it seems.
Verdica Organics touts selling only Certified Organic foods but then so do many other grocers, right?
However, it appears this online grocer takes this certification and business ethics to heart. Herein are our findings after pouring through 15 plus pages on their web site.
This grocer seems to adhere to the US plus four other international organic certifying agencies.
Only farmers who are certified organic, registered and source traceable who are then open to unannounced audits from their government accredited organic agencies can sell to Verdica.
That kinda says a lot in respect to their standards.
Surprisingly after all this is said Verdica does not carry the FairTrade Mark. But state they do meet every standard set by the agency.
Standards like no child or slave labor and a more fair distribution of revenues throughout the food chain. List your store here.
