B-QUAL Australia Pty Ltd has been established by the Australian Honey Bee Industry Council (AHBIC) as an independently developed and audited food safety program. B-QUAL aims to ensure that 90% of honey produced in Australia is quality assured for both the domestic and export markets.

OFC is proud to partner with B-QUAL so that you can now have your organic inspection against the National Standard for Organic and Bio-Dynamic Produce done at the same time as your B-QUAL inspection. Please contact B-QUAL here for more information about how to start the process.

Organic certification to the National Standard with OFC will enable your beekeeping products access into many major international markets, excluding the EU, Great Britain, USA and Japan.

B-QUAL approved honey suppliers are required to complete biosecurity training and bring operations into line with the program’s biosecurity standards. Each enterprise is audited biennially or annually to monitor compliance to their approved Quality Assurance system.
