Although Canadian retailers selling organic products are not required to be certified organic, they must ensure that the organic integrity of such products is maintained at all times. COTA is working with several industry leading experts to develop a curriculum to provide retailers with voluntary best practices for handling, displaying and selling organic food that complement Canada’s organic standards and regulations.
