USDA Certified Organic

Organic is a labeling term for food or other agricultural products that have been produced using cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that support the cycling of on-farm resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity in accordance with the USDA organic regulations. This means that organic operations must maintain or enhance soil and water quality, while also conserving wetlands, woodlands, and wildlife. Synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, and genetic engineering may not be used.

Global GAP

By linking small, medium, and large-scale farms to local and global corporate food buyers, Global GAP helps farmers utilize globally recognized certificates to access new markets. Once certified, market incentives encourage farmers to adopt safe and sustainable farming practices and measure their contribution toward the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
