Fraud within the organic sector compromises the integrity of organic businesses and products

Organic BC is committed to supporting certified organic farms and businesses by working to prevent and address fraud in partnership with the BC Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

Most commonly, fraud consists of fraudulent certificates which falsely represent agricultural products as certified organic under either the BC Certified Organic Program or the Canada Organic Regime. If a suspicious certificate is encountered, please report it to the Organic BC office. If you’re unsure about an operator’s organic status, you can always refer to our organic directory.
