Organic Certification

Organic Certification

Organic certification is a process whereby food growers must meet certain requirements in order to use the term "organic" in association with their products. The criteria varies by country, but generally organic certification involves using no synthetic chemicals (such as herbicides, pesticides, antibiotics, etc.), no genetic modification, no irradiation, use of chemical free farmland, and undergoing routine inspections.

Some governments legally limit the term "organic", and it can only be used by organically certified farms. Organic farmers must also maintain a paper trail of sales and purchases, and they are liable under the same laws as non-organic farmers are as well.
