USDA National Organic Program
Organic farming is among today's fastest growing sectors in production agriculture, thanks to growing worldwide consumer demand. As the popularity of organic has grown, so too have incentives to misrepresent products as organically grown in the market. SCS is committed to supporting those growers and handlers who have done the hard work necessary to make an organic claim.
SCS has been working with organic operations for nearly thirty years, providing a full spectrum of certification and testing services. We were among the first certifiers to be accredited under the USDA National Organic Program (NOP), and have worked successfully with some of the most innovative growers and handlers around the globe to promote responsible agricultural practices. Moreover, certification through SCS gives you the unique opportunity to actively market your pesticide residue free status during the three-year mandatory transition period to organic.
