Organic Production & Handling Standards

Organic is a labeling term that indicates that the food or other agricultural product has been produced through approved methods.

These methods integrate cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity.

Synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, and genetic engineering may not be used.
