What is OMRI?
"Founded in 1997, the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) provides organic certifiers, growers, manufacturers, and suppliers an independent review of products intended for use in certified organic production, handling, and processing." "When companies apply, OMRI reviews their products against the National Organic Standards. Acceptable products are OMRI Listed® and appear on the OMRI Products List." (www.omri.org)
Being included on OMRI's Product List indicates that SoilGanic complies with their policies and standards which are based on the requirements of the USDA National Organic Program Rule (7 CFR Part 205).
