Certification of Transportation and Logistics Services
Conducting certification of organic production in the field of Transportation/Logistics is an important direction of our main activities, in which we have extensive experience. Precisely, the first project in Ukraine was implemented under the certification of Organic Standard.
Circulation of organic products means any transfer or storage of organic products for sale in accordance with the requirements of standards.
We have a proven track record in certifying transportation and logistics services under international and private standards, such as the EU Organic Regulation, Canada Organic Standard (COR), and Bio Suisse (Switzerland), both in Ukraine and beyond.
Any type of organic product may be transported. According to Organic Standard's experience, transportation and logistics services are most commonly certified for operators working with large volumes of grain crops, seeds, or feed.
Certification involves the thorough verification and assessment of production methods and products to ensure compliance with organic regulations. We issue internationally recognised certificates upon successful certification, granting our clients access to premium organic markets.
Organic Standard provides a comprehensive range of services that encompass inspections and certification based on various standards and ongoing support for the Operator during the entire certification process. We place great importance on the expertise of our specialists and continuously enhance their skills and qualifications. As a result, this approach allows us to deliver high-quality service to our clients.
