What this seal means 

A closer look behind the standards

This seal can be used only when the product is certified organic by CCOF, one of eighty USDA-accredited certifying agencies that is authorized by the USDA to certify farms and businesses to the USDA organic standards. CCOF has no additional requirements for use of this seal.

The standards behind this seal, therefore, are the same as the USDA organic standards.
