Changes to Requirements for Organic Package Labels

por Jon Knapp |

A recently released NOP notice may require you to take action! Please review the labeling changes carefully and contact us at ccof@ccof.org or (831) 423-2263 if you have questions.

By January 1, 2014, all package labels for organic products must state “Certified Organic by CCOF” BELOW the name and contact information for your operation.

If the statement u201cCertified Organic by CCOFu201d is located elsewhere on your label (next to your company name, above it, near it, etc.) you will need to change your labels before January 1, 2014.

What Labels are Affected?

This change affects retail labels used on packaged products labeled as “100% organic,” “organic,” or “Made with organicu2026”. It does not affect labels or language used on unpackaged product in wholesale, bulk, or shipping containers, such as produce boxes.
