Coco Treasure and the USDA Organic Seal

Some certifications aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on, but the USDA Organic Seal is a certification that business people aspire to receive and consumers know they can respect. Becoming USDA Organic Certified is a long and demanding process—and it should be. It tells consumers that a company has met stringent guidelines for growing and producing products without the use of conventional pesticides, petroleum-based fertilizers or sewage sludge. Yes, we did just say sewage sludge. Some products use words like “natural” or “organic” to confuse buyers, but only the cheerful green and white USDA Organic Seal confirms that no toxic chemicals—or sewage—has been used to grow your food.

Organic agriculture is a commitment to methods that preserve the environment. Growing crops or raising animals for meat through organic methods is also a benefit to the farm workers who labor to put food on America’s table. Employees of organic companies can do the jobs they love without concerns about being exposed to dangerous pesticides and other chemicals every day. When you see the USDA Organic Seal on Coco Treasure products you will know our company:

  • Uses only approved materials
  • Works hard to preserve natural resources and biodiversity
  • Never uses GMOs—genetically modified ingredients
  • Welcomes annual onsite inspections of our coconut farms and processing plants

Coco Treasure is proud to have earned the USDA Organic Seal; it is a symbol of the standards and agricultural ethics that drive our success. Organic certification also shows our customers that we care about providing the highest quality unrefined coconut oil and coconut-based foods, that we care about the health of the farmers and plant workers who are the backbone of our company, and that we care about preserving the beautiful tropical ecosystem where our coconuts are grown. Because we are USDA Certified Organic, our customers know they are getting the purest, most wholesome coconut products on the market.
