Organic certification is a certification process for producers of organic food and other organic agricultural products. In general, any business directly involved in food production can be certified, including seed suppliers, farmers, food processors, retailers, and restaurants.
People are becoming increasingly worried about the ecological, social, and health issues associated with conventional industrial food production. Organic certification and auditing services support you in meeting the growing demand for organics.
Becoming certified organic helps producers and handlers:
- Receive premium prices for their products.
- Access fast-growing local, regional, and international markets.
- Support local economies.
- Access additional funding and technical assistance.
- Market products to consumers.
