Rules of Use for the LEAF Marque Logo
Only members of LEAF can apply and use the logo on their brand or of a third party brand on LEAF Marque certified product(s) and these member companies will need to use the LEAF Marque Chain of Custody system.
All packaging that carries the LEAF Marque logo will need to be approved by LEAF. If the product contains less than 95% LEAF Marque certified ingredients it will need a qualifying statement(s).
Any brand / company / farm wishing to apply the LEAF Marque logo or make a claim about the product should consult LEAF at the earliest opportunity to ensure that they can meet all the requirements. Contact LEAF Marque
Percentage of LEAF Marque Certified Content in Single and Multi Ingredient Product
The percentage of certified content used in a product determines how the LEAF Marque logo may be used. LEAF encourages companies to use 100% certified content, whenever possible, in any packaging bearing the LEAF Marque logo.
Only products that contain at least 95% LEAF Marque certified can use the LEAF Marque logo on product packaging without a qualifying statement.
Products are only eligible to use the LEAF Marque logo when the percentage of LEAF Marque certified content reaches a minimum of 30% and then it must be the main ingredient(s). ie in a meat pie all the meat must be LEAF Marque.
The 30% LEAF Marque certified content level is considered a starting point. However, companies selling products bearing the LEAF Marque logo with less than 95% LEAF Marque certified content are required to scale up over time and achieve 100% of the ingredient sourced from LEAF Marque certified farms.
Products where the % of ingredients is less than 95% must carry a qualifying statement to ensure that it is clear what is LEAF Marque certified.
