PACS Re-Branding

February 21, 2019
Pacific Agricultural Organic Certification Society

We are proud to announce the launch of our Pacific Agricultural Certification Society (PACS) logo as part of the ongoing evolution of the PACS Certified Organic brand. With our new branding we've also new launched a website in the Spring of 2019. We are so excited!

Last year we started considering new ways to use web technologies to support and expand our dedication to client services. The first step involved updating our branding. Pacific Agricultural Certification Society is commonly known throughout the industry as “PACS,” so we decided to keep the acronym in our new logo for easier name recognition. Next, we developed a new website that reflects current standards, electronic device capabilities and offers a more robust platform for user experience and feedback. To streamline the transition from the current logo to the new logo, both logos will be available for a period of time. If you are an operation with a large inventory of labels (expected to last 2 years before exhaustion), please let us know.

Over the past seventeen years, PACS has grown and become a strong leader in organic certification across Canada. We’re developing new certification to a broader infrastructure of service opportunities. We have also continued to innovate new procedures to reduce the burden of paperwork for our clients. With the release of our new logo and website we will further enhance our customer service. As always, PACS strives to provide customers with top quality services at competitive prices while maintaining a consistently high level of customer service. We are motivated to establish and maintain a sustainable system that will save operators time during the certification process.

A group of organic, health-minded individuals interested in supporting a sustainable food system were the pioneers of organic and the founders of the PACS. We honor their dedication and legacy every day by actively focusing on the growth of PACS nationwide. We redesigned our logo to reflect who we are today and to symbolize our dynamic and unswerving commitment to the organic industry and our clients.

Our next goal is to use our new infrastructure to increase client engagement and satisfaction. We are eager to receive client input during this phase. Please let us know what would be most valuable to you on the website: blog posts, resource material, frequently asked questions (FAQ), etc. We want to customize the experience to best suit your needs and preferences.

As always, we appreciate your loyalty to PACS and will continue striving to deliver the best service and support to help facilitate your vital work of providing continuous certified organic products and services for consumers all over the world.
