    About the standard

    Our global network of offices, under the umbrella of our accredited Dutch head office, allows us to make certification efficient and cost effective, whilst upholding the same stringent professional auditing and certification procedures.

    Organic farming is a way of producing food that respects natural life cycles. It minimises the human impact on the environment and operates as naturally as possible without using GMO.

    Certification process

    Organic farming is part of an extensive supply chain, which also includes food processing, distribution and retailing. To be suitable for organic markets, the whole chain of organic production needs to be inspected and certified. Once all requirements are fulfilled, the certificate can be issued and the organic logo can be used on the certified products. Control Union Certifications can provide you with annual audit and certification services.
