Is the whole store organic?
In 2009 The Big Carrot committed to organic by certifying some of our organic handling to the Canada Organic Standard. All processing at our cold-pressed juice line, meat facility, bulk and produce departments is certified to the Canada Organic Standard. Our staff are trained in organic food handling, we require certification letters from all of our manufacturers to ensure quality and we are audited annually by a third party certifier. Please see our organic standard page for more information.
