Organic Certification

MCIA is a USDA National Organic Program-accredited certification agency. MCIA Organic Services primarily serves organic producers, handlers, and processors located in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest.

MCIA’s certification process is efficient, user-friendly, and competitively priced. Our customer-focused staff guides clients through every step of the organic certification process, providing support and resources along the way.

The decision to enter the organic marketplace demonstrates a commitment to organic integrity. The USDA National Organic Program (NOP) is the standard for organic certification in the United States. Certification allows organic operations to display the NOP certified organic seal on their qualified products. The USDA organic seal on organic products improves consumer confidence, market creditability, product marketability, and global distribution.

Organic trade and equivalency agreements have made NOP organic certification internationally recognized as certified organic in the European Union, Canada, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom. MCIA can help clients who are entering foreign markets understand how to extend their NOP organic certification internationally.
