Global Organic Certification

SpecialChem / Nick Morante – Feb 1, 2008

Organic certification of ingredients and products is not just a US Department of Agriculture thing it is very much a global happening. Almost every country and local jurisdiction has some type of organic certification process in place. In the United States every state has a certification program as well as their individual counties and even individual companies such as the Dole Corporation. The main goal of many, if not all, these associations is to help farmers and gardeners grow organic food, protect the environment, recycle natural resources, increase local food production, support rural communities, and illuminate for consumers the connection between healthful food and environmentally sound growing practices. Again we are talking about foods but recent legislation states that this certification process can be applied and the various seals used on cosmetics and personal care products as long as the same rules and guidelines have been met. Other companies will be sure to be follow suit.
