Join us February 5th-7th, 2014 at the San Antonio LaQuinta Inns Suites (located on 303 Blum) for a fun and educational experience. You won’t want to miss hearing Mark Kastel, Co-founder and Senior Farm Policy Analyst of The Cornucopia Institute talk about maintaining consumer choice and access to ‘authentic’ food. Also, Dr. Rhonda Janke, Professor at Kansas State University will offer workshops on soil quality in organic high tunnel production and using art as a way to communicate important issues in agriculture.

While you’re there, be sure to take a riverboat ride down the scenic San Antonio Riverwalk and visit the Alamo. Go to http://visitsanantonio.com to order your FREE San Antonio Travel & Leisure Guide, full of discounts and coupons!

And, let us know if you are interested in sponsorship opportunities or incorporating your organic product into our menu. More information about the OCIA Annual General Membership Meeting can be found in the links below.

CONFIRM SUBMISSION

Thank you for submitting your organic certification application! OCIA looks forward to working with you.

For applicants who are new or currently under suspension, please see the end of the page for some important notes.

An estimate for your 2020 certification and inspection fees was sent with the login information. Please promptly send payment to the address on the invoice. If you are a new applicant, OCIA will not review your file until payment is received.

If you are submitting hardcopies of any supporting documents, please mail them to the address on the invoice. Failure to submit required supporting documents may lead to delays in the review.

Once a complete file is received, OCIA will complete a pre-inspection review. During this process, OCIA will contact you if additional information is needed. Please respond to any communication from OCIA in a timely manner.

Please contact OCIA International if you have any questions.

New applicants: Please be reminded that as a new applicant, your operation currently cannot label or sell product as organic. If organic certification is granted, an organic certificate will be issued and product can then be sold as organic.

For farm operations, the inspector must see your crop in the field, so check-strips must be left in all fields requested for certification if any harvest occurs prior to inspection. For hay fields, any hay harvested prior to inspection cannot be certified as organic.

For suspended operations: Please be aware that no product can be sold as “organic” while suspended and previous product is no longer “organic.” For farm operations, any crops currently in storage are no longer organic and must be sold conventionally. Only crops harvested after reinstatement, if it is granted, may be sold as “organic.” Any crops harvested from fields prior to reinstatement must be sold conventionally.
