CmiA launches organic cotton standard

Written by Tommy Lee

PORTLAND – Through its Cotton made in Africa (CmiA) programme, the Aid by Trade Foundation (AbTF) has officially launched its ‘CmiA Organic Standard’ onto the market for the first time. The standard principally combines existing organic standards with socio-economic criteria regarding food security, farmer income, and gender equality. It also draws on criteria from the European Organic Regulation’s 834/2007, the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) standard, and previous social and economic criteria implemented in CmiA’s principles.
