Can I co-store organic and non-organic products?
Yes. This is considered a “split operation,” or a facility that handles organic and non-organic products in one location.
When storing organic and non-organic products, you must prevent all organic product(s) from coming into contact with prohibited materials (e.g., sanitizers, pest control substances, etc.) or from commingling with non-organic product(s).
Can I store organic products in a non-certified facility?
If your product is packaged or sealed in a container and clearly labeled prior to storage, you may be able to use a non-certified storage facility. Your product can’t be processed while on-site at the non-certified facility. This includes no repackaging, relabeling, or introducing atmospheric modifiers such as ethylene.
The non-certified storage facility must fill out an Independent Storage Information Sheet.
