What is Organic?
Organic refers to an agricultural system that is founded on the natural world. Organic farmers are stewards of the land and work to build soil, promote ecological balance and encourage biodiversity. Growing and eating organic food supports human and environmental health while fostering thriving local economies.
The MOFGA Certified Organic Label …
Assures integrity and transparency.
The word “organic” is federally regulated. Before a farmer or food producer can start selling foods labeled as organic, an accredited third-party inspector – such as MOFGA Certification Services LLC – must visit the business and ensure that organic practices are being followed. Certified organic producers are inspected annually and must keep careful records of their practices to ensure compliance with federal organic standards.
