Officially Certified - Beware of "Organic" Impostors
Did you know, the word "Organic" isn't allowed to go on just any product because the manufacturer thinks the ingredients are organically sourced? Actually, there is a certification process that suppliers who offer organic products must go through to ensure that the chain of custody always honors the organic designation. This means no co-mingling of organic/non-organic products, among other strict quality assurance guidelines. The agency that certifies a product as organic has inspected the facility and has approved the flow of material to ensure organic standards are up kept.
Culinary Solvent is certified 100% organic by The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA.org). You can contact us here if you'd like a copy of our current year's certificate for your records.
Beware of ethanol that use the word "organic" without providing the source of the certifying agency. We recommend sourcing your ethanol as close to the distillery as possible to ensure that organic chain of custody has been maintained throughout the life of the product.
