The Certification Program provides voluntary, third-party verification and
certification for a variety of standards and processes in agricultural
production. Certification and audit services are designed to help producers
and handlers meet market access needs and differentiate their product in the
marketplace. In addition to established programs, custom audit services are
available upon request.
ODA does not exclude from its certification programs any person, due to discrimination because of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, or marital or family status.
