All brands are encouraged by The Good Shopping Guide to begin introducing more ethical and sustainable practices, taking inspiration from our top-rated brands like Biona.

What makes Biona an ethical brand?

As a top-rated brand, Biona receives a top score in the majority of our categories.

However, we are especially pleased with Biona’s top score for our Genetic Modification category. On its website, Biona shares a statement which confirms that it does not use any genetically modified ingredients in its products.

Does Biona have an Environmental Report?

Biona’s ethical values, which include its focus on vegan and organic products are discussed on its parent company Windmill Organics’ ‘What We Stand For’ page.

The brand proudly displays certifications such as Bio Fair Organic Fair Trade. However, because Biona does not provide an Environmental Report outlining its sustainability goals, it is given a middle in this category.

What can Biona do to improve its score? 

Biona’s above benchmark score within The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Cooking Oil sector is the result of an assessment of multiple ethical criteria.

Because Biona already meets the minimum ethical benchmark on the Cooking Oil Ethical Ratings Table, it is urged to apply for Ethical Accreditation. After The Good Shopping Guide has received Biona’s application, we will provide it with some advice on how to improve its score further before offering it the use of our ethical mark.

Were you aware that obtaining Ethical Accreditation could be advantageous for your brand? Top-rated brands can display The Good Shopping Guide mark, demonstrating to consumers that it can be trusted as an ethical and sustainable brand.
