Certification

Question: 

Can I call my product "certified organic" once approved?

No, only foods, fibers, and feeds are eligible to be called "certified organic" and carry the USDA's seal for organic products. Input products are used to grow, process, or produce organic foods, feed, or fibers including substances such as fertilizers, pesticides, and other materials used on a farm or in a food processing facility. They are typically not eligible to carry the USDA seal or use the term "certified organic." Organic operators look for the OMRI Listed® seal because it assures them the product has passed OMRI expert review for use as an input for organic production.
