*Overall satisfaction is an individual rating and not a combined total of all ratings. By default, brands with equal overall satisfaction ratings are sorted by the mean overall satisfaction score as rated by consumers. You can click the arrows at the top of any column in the table to sort by the results in that column.

Most Satisfied Customers | ALDI's Organic Food Products
Aussies have rated ALDI’s organic food products as the top pick in Canstar Blue’s latest organic food products ratings, with five-star reviews in freshness of produce, value for money, taste, texture & consistency and overall satisfaction.
Our review compares organic food products on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which organic food product they think is best!
Respondents rate their satisfaction with their organic food brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with an organic food brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
Freshness of produce: the produce appeared and tasted fresh.
Value for money: the cost was reasonable given the quality of the product and sustainable and ethical production.
Taste: the product tasted authentic and the flavour matched the packaging description.
Variety & range: the organic food brand offered a variety of products, sizes and flavours.
Packaging: the product packaging was functional and convenient to use (i.e. included a re-sealable opening) and contained adequate information.
Texture & consistency: the products were rich and had the expected consistency.
Ingredients: the products were made from ingredients that were sustainably sourced and ethically manufactured.
The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.
Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.
Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

What is organic food?
Organic food refers to agricultural products that are farmed, grown and processed without using fertilisers, pesticides, synthetic chemicals or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). This includes meat, fresh produce and food products like honey, coffee, eggs and dairy, to name a few examples. Organic farming is considered a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly way of farming that uses crop rotation, organic manures, hand weeding and biological pest control to grow, and produce food.
How do you know if a product is really organic?
Most organic food products display a symbol, logo, or trademark on their packaging to show that they are certified organic. This stamp of approval is provided by various private bodies (not the Australian Government), which means minimum standards required for certification may vary. This is because there are no mandatory requirements for organic products sold in Australia to be certified in order to be labelled ‘organic’, according to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). However, many organic businesses and farmers voluntarily choose to become certified by an organic certification body like the National Standard for Organic and Biodynamic Produce, to support their organic labelling claims and promote consumer confidence. The ACCC states that all organic claims should be able to be substantiated, whether they display an organic tick of approval or not.
