Statement on USDA’s Strengthening Organic Enforcement Final Rule

January 18, 2023

OPA is pleased to see the release of USDA’s Strengthening Organic Enforcement final rule. As the first major overhaul to the National Organic Program (NOP), USDA’s sustained work on this effort is appreciated. Demand for organic produce continues to grow, and this rule will help protect the organic seal and ensure continued consumer confidence in the organic produce they purchase. The Organic Produce Association looks forward to working with our members and USDA as the rule is implemented.
