Certifications & Memberships
Mountain High Organics is proud of the numerous industry memberships and certifications that we have achieved as a company allowing us to provide our customers with the best organic sustainable ingredients available on the market today.
Quality Assurance International
Quality Assurance International (QAI) began certifying agricultural products to the California State standard in 1989, before there was a national/federal organic standard. QAI was the first certification agency to take a business-like approach to the certification process. From the beginning, QAI saw a long horizon for organic, understanding that consumer trust in organic claims could only be guaranteed through rigorous verification, inspection and assurance of organic practices.
Today, QAI has grown to be one of the leading providers of organic certification services worldwide. As a USDA-accredited certifying agent (ACA), QAI’s programs verify organic integrity at each link of the product handling chain, helping to assure compliance with organic standards for agricultural producers, food processing facilities, integrated manufacturing operations, contract packing operations, traders, distributors, retailers, and ultimately, for consumers.
European Union Standards
European Union Standards Certification is about conformity assessment (testing and certification) in order to declare compliance with EU regulatory requirements. For the majority of exported products, compliance is visibly testified by the use of CE marking.
The National Organic Program
The National Organic Program (NOP) is a regulatory program housed within the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. They are responsible for developing national standards for organically-produced agricultural products. These standards assure consumers that products with the USDA organic seal meet consistent, uniform standards. Nearly 4,000 AMS professionals work every day to support the country’s diverse agricultural operations, which range from individual farmers to international businesses and employ 1 in 12 people. AMS services and its millions of dollars in annual grant investments also create opportunities by supporting economic development in small towns and rural communities that stand as the backbone of American values.
