With our busy lifestyles, having access to healthy, organic delivery to our doorsteps is one of the best conveniences of this modern age. Anyone can browse through an online organic delivery store, click on a few buttons and receive your order without much effort.
Online shopping has gotten even more convenient and affordable for everyone, and when it comes to organic food delivery, it is no different. There are a plethora of organic delivery stores in Malaysia now and as a consumer, you have a huge variety of choices for organic delivery.
What is Organic Food?
Organic food is fresh produce that has been grown without any chemicals or pesticides and is safe for eating. Although pesticide use is a common practice in farming, we still do not know the long-term health effects of pesticide residue in our foods, and for those who want to eat healthily, this is a non-negotiable issue.
One of the best ways to ensure you purchase truly organic food is to look for certified organic labels on your food products. As organic food labelling is not highly regulated by governments at the moment, most farmers turn to independent third-party organic certifying bodies to verify their organic products.
While requirements for certified organic products vary from country to country, they generally involve a set of production standards for organic farming, storage, processing, packaging and transportation. Organic certifications speak to a growing worldwide demand for organic food, and is intended to assure quality and prevent fraud.
Organic certification mark and license numbers should be indicated on the product packaging, as well as for the seller of the products.
For example, for Nature’s Glory, most of our products are certified organic by NASAA, one of Australia’s top certifying associations, with a registration number of 8131P. As a consumer, you can actually verify this by going to the NASAA website and entering our registration number to double check if we are indeed an organic certified retailer.
Things to Look Out for Organic Delivery
Now that you know what information you can use to verify your organic retailers, let’s look at other factors to look out for when it comes to organic delivery in Malaysia:
Wide Range of Organic Food and Produce
When you are selecting an organic grocer, it is best to find one that has a wide range of organic food and produce, so that you have more organic food items to choose from. As they are likely to be a specialty retailer, they would often have access to the best quality and freshest organic food from their suppliers. As a consumer, you would also have a wider range of food that you can select for your everyday meals.
Reliability of Delivery
One thing that you should be able to count on is the reliability of the delivery service. You are paying for the convenience of online organic delivery being sent directly to you versus going to the store to shop on your own. Thus, it only makes sense that the delivery service should be impeccable.
You may also want to check if the organic delivery goes to your area of residence. Because Malaysia is a huge country, you want to check with the delivery service if they deliver beyond the major cities and how much the fees are.
Delivery fees should be affordable for the timeliness of the organic delivery. In addition, since these are basic necessities, having quick and efficient delivery is of utmost importance so that you can receive your fresh organic groceries on time.
Some online grocers also offer free delivery above a certain minimum amount spent when online shopping. They may also offer a membership service with discounted rates for their members. You can sign up for these services to enjoy the perks and lowered delivery fees to save some extra money.
Credibility of The Brand
Another factor to take note of is the credibility of the organic retailer. To ensure your food safety and trustworthiness of an organic delivery service, you would want to pick a credible organic retailer.
Once again, ensuring that the organic retailer has an organic certification would be the first step. Secondly, you can also look at product and store reviews to see what other customers are saying about this company. Thirdly, looking at external press and media who have featured the online organic store can give you further insight into the organic delivery company.
