Commited to the Future of Food

Since 2007 Good Life Organic has supplied South Africans with a growing range of certified organic food products. Based in Durban and distributing nationwide, Good Life Organic is an importer, processor and wholesaler of quality products and ingredients.

Our Mission

To promote the Good Life by:

• supplying the finest quality, certified organic nutritional products using only genuinely natural, minimally-processed ingredients;
• providing a growing market of health-conscious people with new and innovative products from around the globe;
• promoting business practices that respect our planet and its people; and
• operating the company on a sustainable financial basis of profitable growth, thereby increasing value for all stakeholders.

Our Commitment

We are committed to a time-honoured, yet strangely radical idea that good food should be free from:

• Toxic synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers
• Harmful additives and fillers
• Genetically modified organisms
• Irradiation
• Artificial colourants, flavours and preservatives

We believe this objective can best be achieved by promoting organic farming. Since inception we have insisted on organic certification as the best way of ensuring a traceable audit from farm to fork. Transparency, integrity and authenticity are vital in a complex global system where consumers are separated from producers, linked only by a series of intermediaries.
Good Life Organic is committed to sourcing and supplying food that is certified organic because you should know what you are eating; thereby contributing, one mouthful at a time, to the health and wellness of both people and the environment.

The Future of Food is Organic

The Future of Food is Organic

We believe in a sustainable and food-secure future

Organic food production supports biodiversity, ecological balance, sustainability, natural plant fertilisation, natural pest management, and soil integrity.
In less than a century, so-called ‘conventional’ farming has brought our food system to the brink of collapse with its increasingly unsustainable practices. Industrial agriculture pollutes the environment, reduces biodiversity, threatens public health, contributes to climate change and is no respecter of animal welfare. Rather than supplying inexpensive food, industrial farming comes at a devastating social and environmental cost.
In contrast, organic farming is regenerative, and its benefits are scientifically documented¹. In a 30-year study comparing farming systems the Rodale institute concluded:
“Organic farming is far superior to conventional systems when it comes to building, maintaining and replenishing the health of the soil. For soil health alone, organic agriculture is more sustainable than conventional. When one also considers yields, economic viability, energy usage, and human health, it’s clear that organic farming is sustainable, while current conventional practices are not.” ²
