Chris Kidwell
CCOF wishes to thank and congratulate Chris Kidwell upon his retirement after 30 years as an organic inspector! 
During the 1990s, Kidwell served on the CCOF Certification Standards Committee as the chair of the Inspector Development Subcommittee and represented inspectors as a non-voting member of the CCOF Board of Directors. Kidwell has contributed to the development of the organic inspector profession as an active member of the Independent Organic Inspectors Association since 1994, ad has served on the Board of Directors and the membership committee. 
CCOF has relied on Kidwell’s highly skilled inspection work for many years. We could count on him to get the most challenging jobs done well! We hope that Kidwell’s retirement is filled with new adventures and good times.
