National Organic Standards Under Fire
Over the years, the OCA has organized a series of national campaigns to Safeguard Organic Standards. The USDA National Organic Program is the only system in the U.S. that provides certified standards for organic food. As the organic food market expands, big corporations are constantly seeking to change the USDA organic rules so they can more easily label their products “organic”. The OCA and our allies act as an industry watchdog to ensure that the organic standards remain strong.
