Our Mission: To address issues and concerns relevant to organic inspectors, to provide quality inspector training, and
to promote consistency and integrity in the organic certification process.

Chances are, when you purchase certified organic products in today's marketplace, they were inspected by someone who was trained in organic inspection practices by IOIA.

Inspectors provide a critical link between the certification process and consumers. IOIA-trained inspectors are on the ground, at farms and processing facilities, ensuring that the integrity of the certification process is maintained.  Certification = Verification and verification of organic standards costs money, as does providing cutting-edge training to inspectors to keep them at the top of the game.

Your donation enables us to keep the level of organic consumer protection at a level that inspires confidence in organic agriculture worldwide.

IOIA awards the Organic Community Initiative Scholarship to a recipient with potential to develop organic in their region of the world (outside the US and Canada). The scholarship covers the cost of a training but doesn’t cover travel.

The OCIS Travel Fund is supported entirely by donations and has helped scholarship recipients from South Korea, India, Mexico, and other countries travel to training.
