Process of Control and Certification of Organic Products
The modern consumer wants to be more informed and to know about food production methods at all stages of the agro-food chain. Especially for organic products, the appropriate legislative framework has been established that applies not only to the primary (plant, animal production, beekeeping and aquaculture units) but also to the secondary sector (processing, standardization, distribution units of agricultural products), so as to ensure compliance with the commitments of the legislation governing the organic production of products, their processing, labeling and marketing.
Therefore, after the control process, farm owners who produce, standardize, process or market organic products may apply. The reason for this is that they can obtain official recognition/certification that they have complied with the laws governing the products that govern them.
Consequently, organic products become more credible to consumers. They become more recognizable in the marketplace. This makes things more transparent at every stage of the production process.
