Regenerative Organic Certified


Regenerative Organic Certified (ROC) is a new certification that can be applied to food, fiber and personal care ingredients and is accredited to the Regenerative Organic Alliance (ROA), founded by Patagonia provisions, Patagonia, Dr. Bronners ALL-ONE and the Rodale Institute.

OIA, a leading certification company, has achieved accreditation for Regenerative Organic Certified (ROC).

It is important to note that in order to obtain it, it will be necessary to be certified by the USDA-NOP Standard, since this standard is used as a reference.

Regenerative organic agriculture is based on three main pillars of agriculture: soil health, animal welfare and social justice. Regenerative organic agriculture promotes practices such as: cover crops, crop rotation, minimal or no tillage, compost and zero use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.

How is the certification process?
  1. The process starts when the producer introduces to OIA the project to be certified
  2. After the certification request and signature of contract between OIA and the customer, there is an exchange of documents and information as required by the certification program
  3. After the inspection, an inspection report is made and there may or may not appear non-compliances. The customer is certified ROC after a positive report without non-compliances.
  4. Then, the cycle restarts for supervision
