Quality Certification Management
Certified Organic
In the last 10 years or so, the Organic has gained very high levels of market acceptance. While as a concept & an idea, it has been getting recognized for the quality of food ie it is without contamination & is healthy & is good for the environment & sustainability of agriculture and so on. However for many organic consumers, the quality attributes associated with the organic products are claims and they do have some apprehensions about the authenticity.

For the producers & marketing organizations to establish their credentials, compliance with the organic certification standards and its mark as a logo or seal on the products sold by them is the only option. Is it enough, probably not at the moment, and since mass media options for educating the consumers are not yet viable, there is an ever increasing anxiety regarding the entire certification process as a whole. For the growth of organic sector and its acceptance among the consumers without any reservation, it is important that factual information is shared.

At Morarka Organic, the organic certification is carried out as a ritual. There are some inherent advantages that have been the basis of organic cultivation itself. The most modern Information Technology (IT) tools are deployed to ensure efficient process monitoring. The compliance is ensured with the most advanced Country/Market standards such as United States Standards for Organic NOP, European Standards EU, Indian Standards NPOP, Japan Standards JAS, Swiss Standards etc. And off course the leading international Certification Agencies from US, EUROPE & INDIA are assigned the responsibility to verify the organic value chain at Morarka.

In addition to compliance with organic standards, at Morarka the complete value chain is also certified for other internationally recognized quality management standards, such as ISO22000, HACCP, MRL Standards, Biological Contamination Standards, EUREPGAP, VALID IT and so on.

The word 'ORGANIC' is protected under law and can not be just a claim.

Organic Certification Process!

World over the concept of organic food has come about, due to demands from consumers for food without contamination. This essentially means that on the farm synthetic and chemical inputs should not be used for qualifying as an organic produce.In response to consumer demands, many countries have enacted “LAWS” to regulate organic food production, handling and processing. These laws are commonly known as "ORGANIC STANDARDS".  In case of organic certification, as compared to any other quality certification which is entirely based on 'product testing' the organic certification is entirely based on 'process verification'. To understand how they ensure the authenticity of organic claims, it follows a prescribes procedure as follows; 

·  Organic Standards as laws have provisions for appointment of Certification Agencies. These agencies operate as an independent third party verification and certification agency. They are responsible for ensuring compliances with the criteria prescribed for organic production, handling and processing.
·  Every producer, adopting to be an organic producer, first of all registers his/her production unit – farm with any one of the Accredited Certification Agency.
·  A producer once registered, also signs a declaration about his/her commitment to follow Organic Standards. These standards could be any one type or more such as INDIA-NPOP, US-NOP, EU-2092/2091, etc.
·  The producer while following Organic Standards also maintains complete records of all the activities and practices followed for production at the farm unit.
·  The Certification Agency conducts regular, periodical and surprise AUDITS to verify the compliance with the prescribed Organic Standards.A farmer-producer found to be in-compliance with the Organic Standards is issued a CERTIFICATE. This certificate authorizes the producer to put a STAMP as a mark of compliance with the relevant laws applicable for organic production, processing and handling.

This certification mark on any product is a complete guarantee for the organic quality of a product. Presently the majority of the world trade for organic produce is in compliance with the above certification procedure.

Know your Organic Farmer !

 The organic value chain begins with the farmer who takes up organic cultivation. While in another section on this site, we have attempted to explain the most suitable candidate farmer for organic methods of production, here we would like to also describe the process of enrollment, technology transfer, record maintenance, inspections etc that ensures highest levels of guarantee for the organic claim made by Morarka.

Normally, everyone has an image of a farmer, which is entirely based on their own perceptions. However, most of the persons are not able to create an image of an Organic Food Producer. At Morarka, based on its experiences so far, we can easily profile the organic farmer.

·  A farmer becomes organic food producer by choice.
·  A farmer who believes that Mother-Earth and Nature can produce enough for everyone accepts the organic philosophy.
·  A farmer who is willing to work hard to produce inputs at the farm itself (rather than buying them for cash from outside) adopts organic practices.
·  A farmer for whom small reductions in yield and output are better than robbing the earth of its capacity to produce food on sustainable basis.
·  A farmer who is willing to adopt a prescribed procedure for maintaining complete records of his farm activities.
·  A farmer who registers himself with an external certification agency to verify his farm operations and their compliances with organic standards.
·  A farmer who even pays for registration, record maintenance, verification and certification so that a consumer can get food without chemicals.
·  A farmer who adopts most modern technologies and practices, but of different kind such as; Hygiene and Sanitation Standards, Food Safety Standards, Environmental Sustainability Standards, Social Responsibility Standards, etc.

A small farmer, who is doing so much for the quality conscious consumer, is a CERTIFIED organic farmer at Morarka.
