More and more companies are looking to tap into consumers’ growing demand for hemp and hemp-based products. However, no business is better positioned than Kemin to provide companies with USDA-certified organic hemp.
What Is Certified Organic Hemp?
For a product to be certified as organic, it must be grown without using synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides. The good news is that because hemp is an extremely hearty crop that can be grown in many different climates, many farmers can transition to organic farming without having to dramatically change their production processes.
However, this does not mean that the process of actually certifying hemp production as organic is easy. It is not, and there are numerous bureaucratic hoops that farmers need to jump through. To meet these requirements, hemp must also be produced in a manner that is in accordance with the 2018 Agriculture Improvement Act, which put a regulatory framework on hemp production for the first time ever.
Why Do Consumers Seek Out Organic Hemp
Many consumers have made the decision to buy hemp-based products, such as CBD oils because they believe hemp has numeroushealth benefits. To capitalize on these health benefits, they want to be confident that they are getting the best quality hemp available on the market. One way of ensuring this is to buy only USDA-certified organic products since this gives them peace of mind that the product has passed rigorous regulatory reviews. Also, many people choosing hemp products are concerned about the environment and sustainability. Organic farming tends to be more environmentally friendly and sustainable than traditional farming. Therefore, if you see the label certified organic on a product, you can be relatively confident that you are making a good choice for the environment and your community.
USDA Certified Organic is a Big Deal
Because more and more consumers are seeking out organic products, for some of the reasons highlighted above, it is important to offer products that are clearly labeled as USDA-certified organic. This gives consumers the peace of mind that the product has completed the most rigorous certification process. It offers confidence in not only how the product itself was grown, but also in how the land was prepared and maintained in the years leading up to crop production.
If a product claims to be “Made With Organic Ingredients” this is not the same as the product being USDA Certified Organic. A Made With Organic Ingredients label simply means that the product contains at least 70% organically produced ingredients. However, the USDA Certified Organic seal confirms that everything from the soil quality to how the pest is controlled follows strict federal guidelines.
