Where to Find Certified Organic Ingredients

Find real organic ingredients for your business or products


As a certified or even un-certified, but still organic business owner, you may need to locate real organic ingredients for your business. Examples of businesses who may need to locate officially certified organic ingredients include certified organic restaurant owners or organic handlers who make mixed organic goods, such as beauty products, jams or baked good.

If you're certified organic, you're required to use only certified organic goods. However, even if you're not certified, but you're still marketing your business as organic, you should make sure to use certified organic ingredients because using fake organics can affect your business in the eyes of customers and your peers.

Finding organic ingredients used to be a lot harder, but it's gotten easier as organic sales have continued to rise.

Below are some ways to locate actual organic ingredients from growers and manufacturers.
