The Value Chain department coordinates our work supporting the improvement of organic standards and verification systems. Regulatory frameworks determine how organic products may or may not be traded around the world and therefore have a tremendous impact on organic market development.
For many years, IFOAM – Organics International has been providing advice to policymakers, national organic movements, NGOs and others, on strategies to develop sustainable and credible organic sectors. We also maintain the IFOAM Organic Guarantee System, a global non-profit independent evaluation program that helps you understand which organic labels you can trust.
Detailed information about our diverse undertakings can be found below. Should you have questions, please get in touch with us.
