What is Organic Certification?

 

Organic certification is the process by which a producer or handler is approved by an Accredited Certifying Agency (ACA) to be in compliance with the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) regulations and ultimately authorized to sell, label, or represent products as being Certified Organic.

All Certified Organic operations must develop and submit an Organic System Plan and successfully complete an organic certification inspection annually.

Working with MCIA Organic Services through the certification process connects you with a:
  • Client focused, highly-trained staff that provides ongoing support and resources
  • Team that guides you through all NOP decisions and rule changes
  • A widely-recognized and trusted organic seal
