This accreditation authorizes CONTROL UNION to carry out conformity assessments in the fields of plants and plant products from agricultural production or harvest, processing and export of plant products and foodstuffs composed of plant products from organic production, manufactured according to Regulation (EC) No. 834/2007, EC889/2008 on organic production of agricultural products and indications referring thereto on agricultural products and foodstuffs

In 2012, USDA commemorated and celebrated its 150th anniversary. Founded in 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed into law an act of Congress establishing the United States Department of Agriculture. The organic standards describe the specific requirements that must be verified by a USDA-accredited certifying agent before products can be labeled USDA organic. Overall, organic operations must demonstrate that they are protecting natural resources, conserving biodiversity, and using only approved substances.

The Fair Trade certification model is designed and audited to ensure equitable trade practices at every level of the supply chain. To earn a license for Fair Trade certified products, companies must buy from certified farms and organizations, pay Fair Trade prices and premiums and submit to a rigorous supply chain audits. This process entails a high level of transparency and traceability in their global supply chains.

ISO 22000:2005 specifies requirements for a food safety management system where an organization in the food chain needs to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards in order to ensure that food is safe at the time of human consumption

The seal means that the certified product or ingredient was produced using methods that support the three pillars of sustainability: social, economic, and environmental. Independent, third-party auditors—critical to the integrity of any certification program—evaluate farmers against requirements in all three areas before awarding or renewing certification. Our certification programs emphasize a commitment to continuous improvement, sustainability training, and clear benefits for farmers.

Kosher Certification is the stamp of kosher approval by a rabbinic Agency verifying they have checked the products ingredients, production facility and actual production to ensure all ingredients, derivatives, tools and machinery have no trace of non kosher substances. The Kosher Certified symbol assures consumers that both the actual product and its production adhere to all Kosher Law requirements.

• It applies measures for ongoing improvement, with the aim of continually improving the business’s operations.

• It provides international recognition, creates a competitive advantage and attracts new customers and investors in international markets, as it shows compliance with the requirements of a scheme accepted by the top food businesses in the world
