Animal Essentials Inc. Receives Organic CertificationVisit page
Animal Essentials Inc., a manufacturer of natural animal supplements based in Victor, Montana has recently been granted an Organic Handler Certificate by the Montana Department of Agriculture, allowing the company to use the USDA National Organic seal on qualifying products. To qualify for the certificate, companies must complete a lengthy and intensive process by which they must demonstrate a willingness and ability to comply with USDA's National Organic Program Standards. The standards are in place to assure that they will properly process, label and store organic products.
"Our decision to pursue organic certification is motivated by a growing audience of consumers that want the same quality for their pets that they demand for themselves and their families," states Animal Essentials president, Greg Tilford, "The program requires us to verify and maintain the quality and cleanliness of any organic ingredient we use--- from the field where it is grown to finished product."
Animal Essentials Inc. also holds the Certificate of Best Manufacturing Practices from the National Animal Supplements Council (NASC), a designation that allows them to use the NASC Quality Seal on product labels. "Being a fully compliant member of NASC shows our customers that we are committed to the highest current standards of quality in the industry today," says Tilford. To qualify as a full fledge member of NASC a manufacturer must pass a rigorous, independent audit of their quality assurance systems and facilities.
