Peterson Services Company is responsible for consulting, supervising and managing Organica’s farms to ensure that products meet the organic standards of USDA and the EU.
In addition, Peterson Service will also control the processing and packaging operations strictly in farms and warehouses in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and other provinces.
Before hiring Peterson Services, Organica has signed consulting contracts with Control Union for the implementation of USDA and EU’s organic requirements, and Traceverified for tracing the origin of food using smartphones.

Organic Certification allows a farm or processing facility to sell, label, and represent their products as organic. The USDA protects consumer options by protecting the organic seal.
