How To Make Sure You Are Buying Organic Products From Organically Certified Companies?

You’ve taken the significant step of switching to organic, for yourself, your family and the world. Congratulations! To make sure that your switch doesn’t go in vain, you have to ensure you purchase actual organic products and not fake ones. How would you do that? Simple. Look for the following organic certificates:

Large scale and small scale farmers who’ve taken up organic farming get their produce certified by some of the above agencies. These certifications assure the customer of actual organic products and also help farmers get a premium on their returns.

In India, the National Program of Organic Production(NPOP) certifies organic companies based on the following guidelines:

  1. Conversion of land for Organic Farming must be done.
  2. All resources used in the farm, right from seeds to fertilisers, should be natural.
  3. No Genetically Modified inputs or Irradiation technology should be used.
  4. Integrity of all processes (physical, biological, mechanical) must be maintained at all times.
  5. Contamination from nearby farms or other means must not be present.
  6. Sustainable farming practices must be followed.

Organic certification in India is issued by testing centers accredited by the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA), a regulatory body under the NPOP.

India Organic by NPOP of India: In 2006, NPOP’s certification was granted equivalence with the European Union and was recognised by the USDA(NOP of USDA).

European Union Organic and USDA Organic: It’s common to see these certifications on Indian products, as many of them are exported to the US and European countries. These logos on them signify that they are qualified as per norms and guidelines set by the organic certification boards of those countries.

The USDA is one of the most comprehensive and demanding organic certification bodies and is known to cover detailed monitoring and control measures.

The EU organic certification is equally strong and you can be assured that any product that possesses its logo, has at least 95% of its ingredients organically produced.
