National and International Standards

India's organic certification standards are set by the National Programme for Organic Production (NPOP), which are based on standards set by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture (IFOAM).

In India, there are a handful of certifying agencies accredited by NPOP. Farmers and producers must register with one of these agencies, who will in turn verify whether NPOP standards have been met.

For certified Organic products, look for a certified agency's logo, for example SGS, and NPOP's India Organic logo.
