Organic Certifications

Organic Certifications

There are two popular bodies of certification for Organic Farming the European Commission and the USDA.

Look for logos like:

European Commission organic logo

USDA Organic Seal

These logo are meant to help identify authentic, well certified organic foods. Learn to read the labels properly.

A label which says Organic would mean atleast 95% of it’s ingredients are organic the remainder must consist of nonagricultural substances approved on the USDA's National List of non-organically produced agricultural products that are not commercially available in organic form

Some labels read 100% Organic, and in those cases all their ingredients are organic.

Other Labels read as “Made with Organic ingredients”. In this case at least 70% of the ingredients need to be organic, the rest may be conventionally grown or approved non-agricultural products approved by the food authority bodies.
