Regenerative certification for real change
Uniquely, the farmer and their regenerative experts develop a plan for the operation of the land being farmed. This plan is reviewed by a panel of experts that approve the vision for the farm’s regenerative journey, which is measured and audited annually. This approach allows for true regional and local flexibility while adhering to regenerative principles, giving confidence that consumers and stakeholders. It has the added advantage of being a detailed management plan, allowing the farmer to focus on delivery of the positive attributes.
This programme functions as a management tool that helps producers meet their own regenerative goals through an audited, regenerative plan—and offers early access to regenerative markets without being certified Organic.
Certified Regenerative by AGW is the only label to require audited, high-welfare production, transport and slaughter practices, incorporating the respected standards of Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW—the label with the single highest impact on consumer purchasing of any food label, according to The Hartman Group.
We’re proud of AGW’s reputation for being a practical, common-sense programme that’s grounded in the realities of everyday farm and ranch life. Unlike most farm certifiers, AGW’s independent trained auditors visit every farm in the program at least once a year to verify they’re meeting the standards. The new Certified Regenerative by AGW programme will be backed by A Greener World’s ISO/IEC Guide 17065 accreditation, demonstrating excellence in auditing and certification–giving farmers, consumers and buyers confidence in reliability and impact.
