In order for you to label and sell your products as Organic, you must first undergo a certification process. That’s where Hiland Global Certifications comes in, to help your business gain certification.

What is Organic?

Organic agriculture is a production system rooted in natural processes, biodiversity, and adapting cycles to local resources and conditions. The major difference between organic and conventional farming is that conventional farming utilizes chemicals to fight weeds and pests and provides plant nutrition.

Whereas organic farming relies on natural foundations such as composting and biodiversity to produce a healthier product. Not to mention, organic farming leaves a smaller carbon footprint, benefits natural ecosystems, and maintains soil health.
