Consumers are trending towards products that are certified organic, whether it be raw ingredients such as vegetables or milk, or manufactured products such as cereals, breads, or granola bars. As part of the certification process through the USDA, organizations looking to attain the organic label must be verified via a third party certifying agent that their processes and finished products meet and comply with federal guidelines.
One of the most important parts of organic certification is testing for the presence of pesticides or other chemical residues. While there is a list of approved synthetic compounds in organic crop production, having verifiable evidence that your organization is in compliance with regulatory guidelines will help your brand earn (and keep) consumer trust by conveying a dedication to quality and transparency. Our team can provide the assurance for your customers by performing the required residue testing, as well as other food safety testing required by FSMA and other federal agencies.
