Our Organics Trading Partners

In Ben Debs' near 20 year association with Australian organic food company Pureharvest he has developed a trading relationship based on a mutual goal of advancing the interest of the Organics Industry and to implement systems that work. Australian Organic Network has now entered into an arrangement with Pureharvest under which they will manage all AON packing and production, our logistical despatches and quality assurance programmes, guaranteeing an assurity of supply and quality between two of the best organised certified organic food companies in Australia.

Ben Debs founded and ran Pacific Organics before it was aquired by Cameron Gough who grew the company based on Ben's original business plan and trading arrangements and in 2018 sold the business to Murray River Organics for a seven figure selling price.

Ben Debs was the inspiration behind, and a founding partner of the Sydney based culinary ingredients company Earth Salt Life, specialising initially in the supply of the very highest quality bulk and packaged Himalayan Rock Salt and bath salts . Salt is an inorganic product, so this is the only business interest of "Mr. Organics" that was not strictly speaking “certified” organic”. Ben has since withdrawn from his role in htis operation.

However, in line with his many innovations in the organics industry, Ben has recently secured supply of highest quality table salt from the internationally recognised Saxa company for which they have recently been able to gain “certified organic” status, based on the purity of their manufacturing process.

Australian Organic Network has developed a strong and successful relationship with FTA Solutions, a major supplier of ingredients to the Australian and New Zealand conventional food industries. AON and FTA have developed a valuable symbiotic relationship through the expertise in organics that AON brings to the partnership. FTA’s global reach and capacity of scale has allowed Australian Organic Network to expand their range of imported certified organic food products they can offer customers dramatically. Through Ben's mentorship and guidance based on his unique industry knowledge, FTA Solutions have been able to certify their operation and have subsequently developed from having no presence in the organic food industry to, in a five year period, achieving currently a $30million annual turnover in organic food imports.

Savy Organics is a family owned company with over 20 years experience importing and distributing quality Certified Organic products. Specialising in supplying bulk ingredients, Savy Organics import a premium range of organic retail brands from Europe, Canada new Zealand and around the world and distribute them throughout Australia. Ben was able to help Savy navigate through a period of very tight operating conditions by advancing organic food supplies and this long term friendship and co-operative business relationship with principal Kenton Savage has been of great mutual value to both businessmen.

Robinvale Wines are renowned for their certified organic and bio-dynamic wines. Their wines cater to health and environmentally conscious consumers, and are made from grapes that have been grown without chemicals or pesticides and contain very low levels of sulphur. Most of the wines are vegan/vegetarian suitable and they also produce preservative free wines. Mr. Organics believes this is a superior Australian product and he distributes their fine non-alcoholic beverages.

Australian Organic Network  also sells fresh certified organic ginger, turmeric and garlic from our farm operation at Byron Bay Organics

Australia is part of the global community. All imported food must meet biosecurity requirements to be allowed into the country. Like food that is produced domestically, food that is imported into Australia must meet Australian food standards, but it is more challenging when dealing with organic food because the food may potentially face the threat of being compromised in it’s organic status, as quarantine officials have the power to fumigate food imports. All the food we source internationally is imported under strict ACO certified organic standards with AQIS supervision, guaranteeing organic integrity.

Our partners have decades of experience in sourcing, verifying and trading with high value international organic sources, and are throughly across the rigorous processes associated with Australian quarantine, and maintaining integrity in the food importation chain..
