Protecting Organic Integrity: OTCO Practices and Policies that Protect Integrity Through the Supply Chain

September 11, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Free

Integrity within the organic system starts on the farm and follows through the entire supply chain. From farmers, processors, brokers, inspectors and certifiers we all play a critical role in ensuring that organic integrity is upheld in order to bring organic products to market. Join this webinar to learn about global and national initiatives in protecting organic integrity as well as what OTCO is currently doing and steps we are working towards to ensure that confidence in organic remains strong. We will discuss OTCO sampling program, unannounced inspections, risk assessments, imports and international trade as well as exempt operations and how all these policies work together in ensuring integrity within the supply chain.
