Safer’s® was founded on the west coast of Canada over 35 years ago. Over time, the company branched into the United States, but has always maintained its Canadian roots. Safer’s® focuses on providing pest control products for organic gardeners across the North American continent.
In 2009, Canada established its guidelines for organic labeling. This effort was applauded by Safer’s®, which has long focused on the organic segment of the Canadian gardening market. These Canadian Organic Standards set out specific guidelines for manufacturers and retailers of organic products and by meeting these standards, individual products may apply for the EcoCert label. Consumers know that products that carry the EcoCert label, including a growing list of Safer’s® products, meet Canadian Organic Standards.
To achieve this organic labeling, key Safer’s® products have undergone extensive review processes, which include using ingredients from Canada’s Permitted Substances List and maintaining these standards throughout sourcing, manufacturing, and final production. The result? Safer’s® keeps adding products that have earned the EcoCert label.
Because many Canadians care about their impact on the environment, they want to know what’s being used on their plants. They also know to look for certain ingredients in their gardening products. These same ingredients, including Potassium Salts of Fatty Acids and PyGanic Pyrethrin, can be found in many Safer’s® products.
