Organic Products

Organic Certification allows a farm or processing facility to sell, label, and represent their products as organic. Most farms and businesses that grow, handle, or process organic products must be certified. Overall, if you make a product and want to claim that it or its ingredients are organic, your final product probably also needs to be certified.

Organic Accreditation authorizes private, foreign, or state organizations to certify farms or processing facilities. (21)
