In 2004, Growers Transplanting saw an opportunity to grow into the ever-expanding organic market. Once we began the process, we recognized the inconsistency within the industry as it pertained to organic production. Therefore, we exceeded organic regulations and dedicated an entire property solely to organic production one mile from conventionally grown produce.
This is the commitment Growers Transplanting has to its customers who have worked so hard to develop and protect their organic certifications. With the early success achieved by this new venture, we quickly grew our overall organic production area three fold.
Having experience in organic production and working to move beyond the minimum regulations to what we feel is necessary to achieve the goals of organic production, we are able and excited to work with others interested in organic production.
Growers Transplanting was certified as an organic producer over ten years ago by Quality Assurance International (QAI). Our track record with QAI has remained in good standing from day one. We also have our EU (European Union) certification through QAI and our US-Canada Organic Equivalency to better serve our customers that grow products for that market. Most recently, Growers Transplanting became Certified CCOF Organic as a result of the company meeting the USDA National Organic Program standards for crops.
