This New Food Label Goes Beyond 'Organic' To Ensure Land And Animal Safety

By

In the aisles of your typical grocery store, we know that "certified organic" is about as good as it gets. But a new certification aims to go beyond organic and provide eco-conscious foodies with an even better standard: Regenerative Organic Certification.

The new certification is led by Rodale Institute, as board chair and spearheaded by Dr. Bronner’s and Patagonia in the areas of farming, ranching, soil health, animal welfare, and farmer and worker fairness. Their latest initiative is the culmination of decades of study around "regenerative" agriculture, or farming that goes beyond being simply sustainable to actually improving the resources it uses rather than destroying or depleting them. The certification will debut at Natural Products Expo West 2018.
