UK: SafeRock® Minerals receive certification for use in organic agriculture from Organic Farmers & Growers

SafeRock® Minerals have received a certificate from Organic Farmers & Growers which ensures their product SafeRock® Agri complies with their standards and is approved for use in organic systems. SafeRock® Agri is one of the three key brands which are owned and promoted by SafeRock® Minerals. It has been used extensively in all aspects of farming including grasslands, crops, orchards, as well as to improve the quality of grazing grass which helps control a condition called Epiphysitis in horses.

Organic Farmers & Growers (OF&G) provides an evaluation scheme for products that are not organic but are approved for use in organic farming or processing. It was at the forefront when organic standards were formalised across the UK and EU, becoming the first body to be accredited by the government to carry out inspection and certification in the sector. The scheme enables suppliers to reassure customers that their pre-approved products can be used in organic systems.

SafeRock® Minerals Ltd owns the unique sedimentary resource which was discovered as surface deposits in Northern Ireland. Recent trials have confirmed that when crushed to a powder it provides a unique blend of minerals and nutrients that is 100 percent recoverable. SafeRock® Minerals aim to use the resource to provide a natural holistic solution to the global crisis of soil degradation, as it increases microbial and earthworm activity, improves soil mineral and nutrient content as well as soil structure.

Bill Avery, Chief Agronomist SafeRock® Minerals, said: “To have certification from such a respected organisation such as OF&G certainly will assist and guarantee our customers a fully audited, quality assured resource. I am proud of the work we do in providing the agricultural sector with a remarkable natural soil conditioner which has been certified as suitable for organic farming.“

SafeRock® Minerals is committed to the research and development of the organic fertiliser, livestock feed, and human health markets, with the strategic aim that these endeavors will be of benefit to future generations.
