MULTIPLE AWARD WINNERS
Our team here at Honest to Goodness are delighted to be repeatedly recognised by the organic community, and by leading and recognised Australian organic independent associations, as a trusted and loved organic brand and company. As a small family founded and run business in this niche and rapidly growing industry, we are able to stay close and really listen to what our customers have to say, as we continuously work towards improving our product offering and services, all the while staying true to our brand values.
Organic Consumer Choice Awards
The Organic Consumer Choice Awards (OCCA's) are particularly important to us as they are the only organic awards program decided by consumers. Over the years, we are both grateful and humbled to be consistently awarded as ‘Favourite Organic Brand’, ‘Best Organic Wholesaler’ and ‘Best Organic Online Store’ in the OCCA's.
In 2021, we are delighted to be awarded ‘Best Organic Online Store’, as well as Runner Up for ‘Best Organic Wholesaler’, reflecting the dual importance of both the direct-to-consumer retail, as well as the wholesale sides of our business.
Organic Industry Awards
We are delighted to be recognised, in addition to our consumer awards, by governing bodies, who strive to ensure that standards are upheld across our industry. In 2021, Honest to Goodness has the extreme honour of being awarded Retailer of the Year 2021 in the Australian Organic Industry Awards:
These awards are held annually by Australian Organic Ltd, the peak body in Australia for the organic industry. It is especially significant to win this prestigious award in such a tough year as 2021, when sourcing goods from Australia, and from around the world for those items grown elsewhere, has been anything but straightforward!

A word from Karen Ward, Co Founder and Owner of Honest to Goodness with husband Matt Ward:
"Through it all, our Honest to Goodness team has continued to innovate and elevate to service our many loyal customers and continue to provide the community with healthy, sustainably sourced and organically certified products at a time when they need it the most. At Honest to Goodness we are very selective in what we offer in the range, with the selection being kept quite narrow as a result. we always source as close to origin as possible and enjoy working with certified organic growers and suppliers doing interesting and innovative work, so we can bring their products and stories to our customers.”
“Our customers’ loyal patronage has enabled us to develop long-term and stable supply chains and trading relationships with our myriad of organic producers doing the heavy lifting that we all know comes with organic practices on the farm.”
