Product Certifications

Certified organic

The NOP organic standard was established via federal regulations, to satisfy consumer demand for organic products. In 2002, the NOP implemented the organic standard for all organic producers to follow who wished to sell, market, or label their products as organic. The NOP defined organic agriculture as:

“Organic production [is] a production system that…respond[s] to site-specific conditions by integrating cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biological diversity” [§ 205.2]

The organic standard is carried out through third-party certification agencies who verify that clients are complying with the organic regulations.

Certified Kosher

Kosher Certification is the stamp of kosher approval by a Rabbinic Agency verifying they have checked the products ingredients, production facility and actual production to ensure all ingredients, derivatives, tools and machinery have no trace of non kosher substances. 

Non-GMO Project Verified

The Non-GMO Project is a nonprofit organization that has developed a verification system—backed by frequent testing of ingredients that could be genetically modified for consumers who wish to avoid them. GMOs—short for genetically modified (or engineered) organisms—are created by deliberately changing the genetic makeup of a plant, an animal, or another organism in a laboratory rather than through traditional breeding techniques. The majority of GMO crops currently on the market have been genetically engineered to produce their own pesticide and/or to withstand herbicides that otherwise would kill them.

cGMP

CGMP refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the FDA. CGMPs provide for systems that assure proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and facilities.
