We believe in collective action across the globe to support healthy soil and food production. We’ve been a member of the international umbrella group for organics, IFOAM – Organics International, since 1985.

IFOAM was founded in 1972 and is a membership-based organization working to bring true sustainability to agriculture across the globe.

IFOAM Oceania

We are actively involved in the Oceania region working with other IFOAM members to build greater communication and collaboration between organic movements in the Pacific Islands, Australia and New Zealand. This work responds to proposed changes in the IFOAM membership structure and the introduction of a One Membership and ultimately one fee system.

INOFO Oceania Pasifika

INOFO is an autonomous body representing organic farmers’ organisations.

Soil & Health supported the launch of INOFO Oceania Pasifika at the 2021 INOFO General Assembly. INOFO Oceania Pasifika will join other INOFO regions in Latin America & Caribbean, Africa (West, East, Southern), Europe and Asia (South, South-East).

We are calling on all Organic Farmers Organisations from Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific to join us at the region’s inaugural virtual General Assembly.
