What is an OPP?

An Organic Product Profile (OPP), is essentially a recipe/list of ingredients, both organic, and non-organic that PACS keeps on-file for every processed multi-ingredient product that an operation certifies as organic. The OPP worksheet calculates the percentage of organic ingredients and lists all product suppliers and their certification bodies.

Every time you have an ingredient and/or supplier change, or wish to add a new product for certification, a new OPP must be filled out, and submitted to the PACS Certification Committee for review and approval.

Upon approval of your OPP and corresponding label, a product may then be added to your organic certificate.
