COR (Canadian Organic Regime)

Certified in good standing since 2011

Our COR program follows Canadian Food Inspection Agency guidelines for the safe production of organic products. It integrates principles of HACCP, GMP, C-TPAT, COR and the European Organic program to ensure consistent, organic products.

COR guidelines prohibit:

  • The use of pesticides / petroleum-based fertilizers / sewage-sludge-based fertilizers
  • Mixing organic and non-organic tea and herb products
  • Organic products from coming into contact with prohibited substances

Annual audits ensure all processes are in order and documentation is up-to-date.
