Exact Abacus Receives Soil Association Certification for Storage and Warehousing

Exact Abacus is pleased to announce that it now holds a Soil Association Certification for Storage and Warehousing. The accolade permits Exact Abacus to store and distribute organic food products from its head office facility based in Chorley, Lancashire.

The Soil Association is a charity founded in 1946 to campaign for healthy, humane and sustainable food, farming and land use. In the mid-1980s the Soil Association brought new credibility to the organic food movement that was entering the supermarkets. Today organic land in the UK accounts for nearly 4% of total agricultural land and the organic food movement is expanding into independent shops both on and offline.

The Canton Tea Co was the first client to benefit from the certification, enabling Exact Abacus to pick, pack and dispatch carefully sourced teas from around the world to specialist tea lovers across the UK and beyond.

If you have an organic product to share with the market, get in touch with Exact Abacus and find out more about our storage and fulfilment services.
