NOP Certified Products & Nitrogen Gas for Packaging

  • Category: NOP

Please be advised that ACO has looked into the use of nitrogen gas when packaging certified organic products that are under NOP certification.

The USDA National Organic Program classifies nitrogen gas as a non-organic processing aid so packaging that is flushed with nitrogen gas means the product cannot be classed as 100% certified organic, but instead will be “Certified Organic”

If you have any questions, please contact the ACO Office.
