Check Organic: How To Enhance Organic Integrity

Benefits: Why should Farmers use Check Organic?

Be visible and display integrity.

The cloud-based online platform Check Organic boosts your visibility and facilitates your access to national and international markets whilst proving your integrity in real time.

Prove credibility.

Since organic products sell for higher prices than conventional ones, the organic sector is highly attractive for fraudsters. Check Organic offers you an easy-to-use online solution to prove that you are not one of them. Your business partners will appreciate your level of transparency, which strongly differentiates you from your competitors.

Be safe. Go digital.

Your transparency and proficiency ideally prepare you for audits and inspections, even on short notice. Digitising your certification and transaction data within the online platform prevents you from losing precious data, which is safely stored with an ISO-certified Austrian hosting provider. To secure proprietary company data, your business connections cannot be viewed by competitors. In a world where digitalisation is key, using Check Organic makes it easier for you to meet wholesalers’ and retailers’ requirements.

Check Organic: how farmers use it

Farmer Tony uses Check Organic

Login on the Check Organic Web Portal

To access and manage his data in Check Organic, Tony gets on his computer and logs into the Web Portal with his username and password.

Master Data and Certification Check

His data, such as contact details, his range of products and applied certification standards, as well as information on his designated certification body, are stored safely in Check Organic.

File Upload

As Tony wants to give his business partners a good impression of what he does, he uses the Check Organic File Upload to provide additional documents which underpin his integrity (such as photos from his products and his farm, analysis reports, etc.)

Transaction Management

Every time one of his clients buys tomatoes from him, Tony creates a transaction in Check Organic and thereby neatly documents both his sales and customer relations.

Mass Balance Check

In the background, Check Organic automatically calculates Tony’s mass balance, comparing his product transactions with his actual production capacities.

Traffic light System

Based on the mass balance, a traffic light displays Tony’s integrity. Tony can check now if he has documented his transactions correctly. His clients can view his status within a few clicks, which saves both parties time for investigations and allows for sound business relations.
