WHAT IS ORGANIC CERTIFICATION?
By the European Commission is described as a "system of production of tasty and authentic food from agricultural processes that respect nature and animal welfare and create new opportunities for people in rural areas"
Organic certification is voluntary; growers, processors and traders who decide to get certified, once got certification, they are also subjected to more than the annual verification checks to ensure the consumer genuine products and actually obtained in respect of the cycle of nature.
WHAT IS THE ITER TO OBTAIN ORGANIC CERTIFICATION?
Any company that wishes to take up the preparation, marketing and import of organic products is well aware that it must under go a rigorous verification process to which must be absolutely compliant. The existence of a European regulation on organic farming, trigger the release of the organic logo and the corresponding labeling system.
The company, after having requested it, must be subject to a conversion period lasting a minimum of two years before they can begin producing agricultural goods that can be marketed as organic. At any time, each business operator (farmer, processor and distributor) may be subject to inspection by the inspection organism at least once a year.
After 2 years to completion of the conversion phase and in case of positive outcome of the inspections carried out by the Inspection organism and by the competent bodies, the company will receive the "subjugation" statement which sanctions compliance and allows the sale of products with the Organic logo.
