Maypro is now certified as a USDA organic handler by Natural Food Certifiers.

As part of its global ingredient distribution operations, Maypro’s services can include manufacturer auditing, GMP documentation, international registrations, liability insurance, repacking of ingredients, as well as other services. This certification complies with the USDA’s guideline requiring organizations involved in handling unpackaged organic goods or the repacking of organic goods to obtain organic handler certification under the SOE Program.

To become certified, applicants must demonstrate compliance with 7 CFR Part 205 of the USDA’s National Organic Program and Final Rule (often referred to as “the Rule”).

“As the demand for organic ingredients grows, this certification allows us to expand our inventory of organic products while continuing to provide our U.S. manufacturing customers with handling and repacking capabilities,” commented Gary Goble, Director of Operations at Maypro.

Isabel Elias-Castro is the President of Maypro’s Global Nutrition Group. She shared, “Maypro currently supplies numerous certified organic functional ingredients, and we look forward to expanding our portfolio of certified organic ingredients.”

The company already represents the certified organic nutraceutical, AppleActiv-DAPP®, an upcycled ingredient derived from apple peels that has clinical substantiation for joint mobility.
