USDA - NOP Organic regulation for USA

Organic farming is a way of producing food that respects natural life cycles. It minimises the human impact on the environment and operates as naturally as possible without using GMO.

Organic farming is part of an extensive supply chain, which also includes food processing, distribution and retailing. To be suitable for organic markets, the whole chain of organic production needs to be inspected and certified. Once all requirements are fulfilled, the certificate can be issued and the organic logo can be used on the certified products. Control Union Certifications can provide you with annual audit and certification services.
