New Zealand Hops products are covered by a range of certifications, as documented below.

Certificates

New Zealand Hops is proud to be certified under the ISO 9001 standard. ISO Certification covers various aspects of quality management and ensures that our products and services consistently meet customer requirements.

All our hops and hop products are composed entirely of hops bred by traditional breeding methods and have been developed entirely from The New Zealand Institute for Plant & Food Research Limited’s conventional plant breeding programme. They have NOT been produced from genetically engineered plants and are NOT transgenic derivatives.

Organic hop farming is a positive management system, not just a case of halting the use of sprays and fertilisers. Organic status is a hard regime for those who want to be sure that chemicals are not used in hop production, but organic is currently the only acceptable and legally recognised standard of chemical-free produce and products. 

In New Zealand certification of organic hop production is provided by the New Zealand Biological Producers and Consumers Council, whose trade name is Bio-Gro New Zealand Ltd. Look out for the Bio-Grow New Zealand logo on our hop variety cards. New Zealand Hops offers 7 varieties grown under the organic regime.

Certificates are made available to customers upon request.
