Zendbox awarded Organic Certification by the Soil Association
March 29, 2022
We are proud to announce that Zendbox is officially certified as an organic operation by the Soil Association (SA).
This makes us the first-choice fulfilment partner for environmentally conscious businesses that are looking to outsource the storage, pick, pack, and shipment of their products. We provide a premium fulfilment solution for a range of pre-packaged goods, including food and drink items like supplements, in addition to beauty and cosmetic products.
The Soil Association symbol is an internationally recognised and trusted mark of organic certification. To be certified by the SA as an organic Food Processor (licence number: DA30929) means that our fulfilment operations comply with the highest organic standards and regulations. These include EC 834/2007 and EC 889/2008, which are essential for businesses to adhere to if they are to sell food and drink products as “organic” in the UK.
Zendbox’s organic certification covers:
Contract distribution Organic
Contract packing Organic
Contract storage Organic
To maintain Soil Association certification, our operations are inspected regularly for compliance with all relevant organic regulations. This involves ensuring that:
Our warehouse operatives are suitably trained to handle organic products
We maintain robust processes for receiving goods and controlling stock, including batch products and goods with expiry dates
Products are appropriately warehoused according to their unique storage requirements
Our Organic Certification should instil further confidence among current and prospective Zendbox partners, that we correctly store, handle, and ship products in accordance with organic regulations. It ultimately demonstrates that we support eCommerce businesses with a fulfilment solution that is truly sustainable, responsible, and ensures as little impact on the environment as possible.
