LABELING ORGANIC PRODUCTS
Organic products have strict production and labeling requirements. Unless noted below, organic products must meet the following requirements:
- Produced without excluded methods (e.g., genetic engineering), ionizing radiation, or sewage sludge.
- Produced per the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances (National List).
- Overseen by a USDA National Organic Program- authorized certifying agent, following all USDA organic regulations.
Can a product be labeled “organic” without being certified?
Overall, if you make a product and want to claim that it or its ingredients are organic, your final product probably needs to be certified. If you are not certified, you must not make any organic claim on the principal display panel or use the USDA organic seal anywhere on the package*. You may only, on the information panel, identify the certified organic ingredients as organic and the percentage of organic ingredients.
*Some operations are exempt from certification, including organic farmers who sell $5,000 or less. http://1.usa.gov/organic-certification.
An overview of labeling the various categories of organic products is provided below.
PRINCIPAL DISPLAY PANEL: portion of the package most likely to be seen by customers at the time of purchase.
INFORMATION PANEL: includes ingredient statement (list of ingredients contained in a product, from highest to lowest percentage of final product) and other product information.
Your certifying agent will review
and approve each of your product labels to ensure compliance. To learn more about labeling requirements in the USDA organic regulations, visit www.ams.usda.gov/NOPOrganicLabeling.
