Can I use any slaughter facility to process my organic animals?

To market your final product as organic, all slaughter and processing facilities must be certified organic. Contact facilities directly to determine if they have an organic certificate. In cases where a facility does not have an organic certificate, you may not use the facility unless it is inspected by CCOF on behalf of your operation. To be inspected by CCOF, the facility and its practices must be described in your own Organic System Plan (OSP). This requires cooperation with the plant owner and manager.
