FoodChain ID recently acquired Organic Certifiers Inc., one of the first certification bodies accredited in the U.S. for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Organic Program. With the acquisition of Organic Certifiers Inc., FoodChain ID and its global entities are now a top five certifier for the USDA National Organic Program by total number of operations.
Organic food growers and manufacturers require reliable certification experts versed in the details of organic certification. FoodChain ID’s organic certification accredited entities, Bioagricert and Cosmocert, are both pioneers in organic certification. Bioagricert and Cosmocert certify over 23,000 organic farms and producers annually across North America, Europe, Latin America, and Southeast Asia.
Moreover, FoodChain ID’s dedicated teams are supporting supply chain participants with the upcoming enforcement deadline for USDA’s Strengthening Organic Enforcement (SOE) Final Rule. Designed in response to increasingly complex food supply chains, distributors and other intermediaries must demonstrate compliance with the new USDA Organic Certification regulations by March 19, 2024.
