Processing, Importing and Other Enterprises
In the organic sector, all enterprises other than farming and growing are classed as “processing”.
The OF&G Processor Certification department covers these activities which include:
- Food manufacture
- Trading, wholesaling, retailing
- Packing and labelling
- Abattoirs and meat cutting
- Poultry slaughter and dressing
- Cosmetics and bodycare
- Storage and distribution, including milk haulage
- On-farm processing
OF&G Processor Certification staff have a wealth of experience in the organic processing sector and can advise on whether or not your enterprise requires organic certification and what this entails. They can guide both prospective and current licensees through the regulations, ensuring proper compliance in all areas.
