AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Socati Corp today announced it has successfully completed the rigorous evaluation process and received official USDA Organic certification for its CBD ingredient line up which can be used in USDA Organic finished products. Significantly, Socati is the only commercial scale producer of USDA Organic certified cannabinoid ingredients with third-party verified non-detectable levels of THC.
The USDA Organic Seal is one of the most recognized and trusted certifications among US consumers and retailers and provides authoritative assurance to consumers on the supply chain integrity of certified CBD products. In addition to assuring no synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides are used in the cultivation of hemp, USDA Organic certification also ensures farmers and manufacturers are using sustainable practices.
The USDA Organic Seal represents a comprehensive organic standard, a rigorous verification system, and a set of effective enforcement mechanisms to safeguard the trust and credibility of organic products, mandating manufacturers to maintain rigorous organic standards from farming through production of final consumer packaged goods. Given the broad trend towards organic and clean label products, Socati believes the company and its partners are now uniquely positioned for the expected widespread shift to premium USDA Organic certified CBD products.
“Our mission has always been to provide the highest quality and most consistent CBD ingredients and finished products in the industry.” said Socati CEO, Josh Epstein. “Through a commitment to clean label initiatives, natural production practices, and significant investment in research and development, Socati has now achieved the breakthrough of being awarded its USDA Organic certification, the gold standard for supply chain integrity, creating competitive differentiation and increased consumer trust at a time when the industry desperately needs it. We could not be more delighted to be able to now offer the compelling brand value of the USDA Organic Seal to our partners and customers.”
Socati was awarded the certification directly from the Montana State Department of Agriculture after a rigorous evaluation process which required a full, detailed review of several key areas of its operations. These included:
- An in-depth review of Socati’s manufacturing records to confirm stringent process and product traceability
- Analysis of the credentials and credibility of each supplier to ensure full organic compliance throughout the supply chain
- Confirmation of meticulous cleanliness standards upheld in Socati’s processing facility
With the USDA Organic certification in place, Socati has launched new organic CBD ingredients for brands looking to bring high quality organic CBD products to market.
- Organic Broad Spectrum Oils – CBD oils rich in other minor cannabinoids. Broad Spectrum Oils do not contain detectable levels of THC.
- Organic Full Spectrum Oils – CBD oils rich in other minor cannabinoids. Full Spectrum Oils contain legal amounts of THC at 0.3% or less.
