Created in 1991, Ecocert started as the organic farming dream of a group of french engineers. More than 30 years later, it has now expanded abroad to more than 130 countries all around the world. Throughout the years, Ecocert evolved into more than just organic farming; offering certification, consulting, and training services in the fields of cosmetics, textiles, forestry, and homecare products. It remains constantly expanding into more contemporary sectors that promote and disseminate more environmentally and socially responsible practices around the world. Sharing know-how is considered crucial to them, as they have assisted over 70,000 clients all over the world throughout their diverse consultancy services.

Cost to get certified:

We couldn’t find any information regarding the costs of their certifications in their webpage, the only limited information we could find on the web is this article by the Organic Council.

Do they perform audits on companies:

Yes. As appointed by themselves, you can find the next description of the process in their webpage: “The entire supply chain is audited, from the raw material to the finished product. Ecocert carries out at least one annual on-site inspection, supplemented by additional unannounced audits during the year. Samples may also be taken for laboratory analysis. The audit reports are then independently verified by our teams in order to certify organic products.”

Standards listed on their website

Although a bit ambiguous, they do share information regarding their different certifications. We’re adding links to two: Organic Farming and Textiles.


We couldn’t find any clear-cut controversies on this movement, instead, we decided to add some articles regarding the public opinion on their work as an organization.
