Understanding Organic Labels and the Top 10 Reasons to Buy Organic

A helpful graphic that shows what the different labels in organic mean, as well as the top 10 reasons why you should be buying organic!

Can I export my product to Switzerland?

Yes! The US and Switzerland have an organic standards equivalence arrangement that allows product produced in either location to be labeled and sold as organic in either country. Enroll in the CCOF Global Market Access program for the US/Swiss equivalence to have your products and labels reviewed and verified as meeting the equivalence requirements.

Can I get my commercial kitchen certified for others to use for organic production?

No, it doesn't help others and isn't required in order for someone else to make organic products in your commercial kitchen. Shared kitchens cannot be certified separately from the product produced in them. Facilities, including shared kitchens, are part of the process of making the products, so the people who use your kitchen must include the kitchen as the production facility in their own certification application, as if it were their own factory.
