Description

The mission of the Organic Program is to ensure the integrity of organic agriculture products produced and manufactured in Texas by providing certification services to Texas producers and agribusinesses.  As an accredited Certifying Agent by the USDA National Organic Program, the TDA Organic Certification Program has the authority to certify organic producers as well as processors, distributors and retailers of organic agricultural products. To be certified, an operation must comply with organic production and handling regulations established by the USDA National Organic Program (NOP).  The programs purposes are simultaneously to develop Texas agricultural economy and to provide consumers with the most abundant and diverse food and fiber supply possible. The program helps Texas farmers diversify their operations and capture a larger share of a growing premium market, and it helps ensure the authenticity of the organic marketing claim.
