The Namibian Organic Association (NOA) is a membership based association established by a group of dynamic farmers and consumers with the common interest of developing the organic sector in Namibia.

The association has the objective to support a sustainable management system for agriculture in Namibia, that:

  • respects nature's cycles

  • enhances environmental awareness through the sustainable improvement of the health of soil, water, plants, animals and consumers, their interconnectedness and balanced relationships 
contributes to a high level of biological diversity;
 

  • makes responsible use of energy and the natural resources, such as water, soil, organic matter and air;


  • respects high animal welfare standards and in particular meets animals’ species-specific behavioural needs.
The association pursues this objective with the following means:


  • To promote the efficient production of organic produce through capacity building, training, education, extension and research;

  • To develop and maintain Namibian Organic Standards for organic production, processing and labeling;

  • To maintain a Participatory Guarantee System (PGS) which guarantees that the organic standards are followed by the producer and/or processor;

  • To protect the “organic” labelling for locally organic produced and/or processed products as owner of a registered trademark; 

  • To assist with organised marketing of organic produce locally and internationally;

  • To strengthen and maintain a positive relationship amongst producers, buyers processors and consumers of organic products;
  • To serve as a mouthpiece and contact point of the organic industry in Namibia and internationally;
  • To create a spirit of co-operation amongst the various organic industry players;

  • To promote co-operation amongst organic producers in respect of obtaining inputs, storing, handling and processing of organic produce to maximize economical viability of the organic sector in Namibia. 
  • To convey the opinion of the organic producers and consumers to the Government and Governmental Institutions and co-operate with them in eliminating obstacles. 
  • To increase awareness for organic agriculture in Namibia.
