Can I use a shared commercial kitchen to make my products?

Yes, certified organic operations can use shared commercial kitchens to make their products, but they must certify the kitchen for their own use. In your application – called an Organic System Plan (OSP) – you will explain how you keep your products separate from any non-organic products or materials in the kitchen.

Using shared commercial kitchens for organic production is common and usually does not pose an undue burden on new applicants. Our inspectors have seen these many times and will work with you.
