The Bio-Dynamic Research Institute, founded in 1957, is involved in research and practical development of the Australian DEMETER Bio-Dynamic Method of Agriculture.
In 1967 it was vested with the rights and supervision of the DEMETER Trademark in Australia.
Part of this role is the certification of DEMETER quality products.
Operators that meet exacting quality Standards may apply for certification to use our prestigious quality mark on their products.
The Bio-Dynamic Research Institute itself is a non-profit company engaging ethical practices.
It is not a certification business in the current sense of this term.
Rather it demands highest quality application of the biodynamic method, fiercely supports family farms and businesses,
and encourages community based, sustainable, ecological activities.
The Research Institute has stood firm and committed to its charter under the current corporatization that is occurring within the organic industry.
Product which carries the DEMETER Bio-Dynamic Mark meet The Australian DEMETER Bio-Dynamic Standard
which incorporates the requirements of the National Standard for Organic and Bio-Dynamic Produce.

Our Biological activities mean we fully comply with best practice Organic methods,
and this is independently verified by the Australian Government through accreditation as an Organic Approved Certifying Organisation.

Our Dynamic activities are unique to us, making us a world leader in ecological and sustainable production of food and fibers.
