May 4, 2005: The
Organic Crop Improvement Association, a Nebraska based-certifier,
has found a way to expand its operation while at the same time supporting
small certifiers world wide. The new program will allow outside certifiers
to access to OCIA’s accredited certification services under
their own identity. As it was put in the Natural Food Merchandiser,
the OCIA handles all the certification, leaving the customer service
and company identity to the local partner.
