Processing & Handling

Clemson University's Organic Certification Program verifies the maintenance of organic integrity throughout the entire production process, from the facility and incoming ingredients to the packaging and sale of an organic product. The first step for any operator interested in organic certification is to become familiar with the National Organic Program standards. Find the NOP Standards and other materials on the Resources page.

All of our certification documents are Word documents (.doc). If you need materials in a different format, please contact Sandy at 864-646-2131 or
