Our Services + Experience = Your Success

Knowing the best and most expedient way to become certified only comes from experience. Organic Concepts is a dynamic team of highly specialized organic consultants with professional education, hands-on training, and a combined 70+ years of experience in the organic industry.

Our team has built key relationships with some of the leading organic certifiers, and through experience, we understand the fine details of the organic certification process. At each step - from application to inspection and final review - we help you prevent or identify potential risks to your certification; saving you time and money.

We’ve worked with the leading growers and ranchers, retailers and processors.  We’ve covered all points along the organic supply chain. Take a look at our specialized services for Farmers & Growers, Processors, and Retailers. If your business is in a different category, we can still assist you, so please contact us to discuss your specific needs.

Total Program Support

We’ve helped our clients map out their plans and develop comprehensive programs based on sound quality management principles, seamlessly integrated policies and procedures that meet all of the regulatory requirements for GMPs, food safety, allergen control, HACCP and ISO. If you have a serious crisis or simply need some guidance, we have a deep network of experienced quality management, food safety and HACCP experts who can assist you.

Speaking Your Language

Because the food industry attracts a diverse workforce, you may need documents in multiple languages. OC can provide the support you need. We’re not only fluent in NOP -- we can develop materials and conduct programs in Spanish and French. We can also coordinate translation of your key documents into other languages.
