The Wholesome Food Association local symbol scheme is a low-cost, grassroots alternative to organic certification for people in the UK who are growing or producing food for sale in their local region.
Members of the WFA who abide by our food production standards and sell their produce locally are entitled to use our quality symbol to certify their production methods.
Good for customers
(The WFA is a non-profit organization. If you are not producing food yourself, but you simply like what we are doing and want to help us promote it, you might consider becoming one of our official WFA Supporters. Click here for details.)
Good for sellers
If you are producing food according to WFA principles and are prepared to sign a pledge to that effect, if you are selling it locally, and if you are prepared to uphold the WFA’s ‘open gate’ policy, you will be entitled to the use of our symbol, assuring your customers of the quality of your produce.
