Organic certifier OF&G (Organic Farmers and Growers) has joined forces with global accreditor Control Union UK to open and expand markets for UK organic food production by offering certification on a global scale.
In the coming period Control Union Certifications B.V. (CUC) wishes to inform you of improvements it is making to its training as well as its internal processes. Please find below the first of our improvements.
Control Union Certifications (CUC) has withdrawn the status of Control Union Turkey as a critical office for international Organic certification programs. This voluntary suspension, effective since 17 April 2019 is part of the rigorous measures CUC has taken in response to concerns raised by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the European Commission (EC) about the quality of certification in the Organic sector.
The European organic sector is flourishing. Businesses are growing and so is the number of requests for auditing and certification. There is, however, a downside as the success of organic also attracts dubious companies keen on getting a piece of the pie. Hence, the relevance of having an adequate organic certification system has grown over the years. Likewise, Control Union Certifications B.V. (CUC) has grown in many different countries, whilst taking responsibility for the certificates it issues.
Control Union, a founding member of Textile Exchange, has been a strong promoter of the third-party assessment system, namely that policy making, certification and accreditation are organized by different parties. It was for this reason that in 2011 Control Union gifted to Textile Exchange the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) and Recycled Content Standard (RCS) which now serve over 1,875 sites.
Control Union UK is pleased to announce the start of its collaboration with Organic Farmers & Growers, OF&G.
Control Union is happy to announce a newly formed partnership with Green Destinations.
