USDA ORGANIC CERTIFIED

Yorba are proud to have several USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC products. Where possible, Yorba always goes the extra mile to ensure safe and organic ingredients for our products. In some cases our ingredients are sustainably wild-harvested in remote areas that do not permit organic certification (despite being the most organic of all…)

USDA certified organic products are produced without the use of synthetic preservatives, petrochemicals, ionizing radiation, or pesticides. The USDA has established a national standard for organic labelling.


USDA Certified Organic, as defined by Wikipedia:

Organic certification is a certification process for producers of organic food and other organic agricultural products. In general, any business directly involved in food production can be certified, including seed suppliers, farmers, food processors, retailers, and restaurants. Requirements vary from country to country, and generally involve a set of production standards for growing, storage, processing, packaging and shipping that include:


  • Avoidance of most synthetic chemical inputs (e.g. fertilizer, pesticides, antibiotics, food additives, etc.), genetically modified organisms, irradiation, and the use of sewage sludge;
  • Use of farmland that has been free from synthetic chemicals for a number of years (often, three or more);
  • Keeping detailed written production and sales records (audit trail);
  • Maintaining strict physical separation of organic products from non-certified products;
  • Undergoing periodic on-site inspections.
