Are organic claims allowed on my website or marketing?

We review websites and marketing of CCOF certified operations to ensure that organic claims are truthful and not misleading about the status of organic and nonorganic products. We look for any use of the word “organic” as well as the CCOF logo or USDA seal. Learn more about what CCOF looks for on a website and marketing to help you design a compliant website and prevent consumer confusion.

Can I get my commercial kitchen certified for others to use for organic production?

No, it doesn't help others and isn't required in order for someone else to make organic products in your commercial kitchen. Shared kitchens cannot be certified separately from the product produced in them. Facilities, including shared kitchens, are part of the process of making the products, so the people who use your kitchen must include the kitchen as the production facility in their own certification application, as if it were their own factory.

Can I label my organic product as non-GMO?

Yes! The organic standards do not allow GMOs. If you are CCOF certified, you can use our “Organic is No-GMO & More” seal in addition to other non-GMO language on your labels.

Can I store organic and non-organic ingredients in the same storage area?

Yes, as long as adequate measures are taken to distinguish organic from non-organic, and storage practices do not pose a commingling or contamination risk for organic ingredients. You do not have to have a physical barrier in place, but adequate separation and labeling should be in place to protect the organic product.

Can I update my online organic directory profile?

We want to help our certified members grow their businesses, and in doing so the organic marketplace. One way we promote our members is by maintaining a searchable online directory of our certified operations. Those looking to find organic products or services can search by keyword, location, or sales method, including Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), farmers' markets, wholesale, export, and more. Each member has a profile in our directory with a description that you can update.
