What MUST be on my certified organic product label?

« Return to all Certification FAQs

Each organic ingredient must be identified as "Organic" on the ingredient statement of products labeled as "Organic," or "Made with Organic (specified ingredients)."

The certifying agent must be identified by name ("California Certified Organic Farmers" or “CCOF”) on the information panel beneath the name of the handler or distributor, and preceded by the statement, "Certified organic by...", or similar phrase.
