BC Certified Organic

BC’s Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick has introduced Bill 11, the Food and Agricultural Products Classification Act in the House so British Columbians can shop with confidence.

The regulatory changes would allow the BC government to build on a commitment that requires all food and beverage products marketed as “organic” in BC to be certified under either a provincial or national certification program by 2018, and consider the certification of products made with BC ingredients in the future.

If passed, the Food and Agricultural Products Classification Act will replace the Food Products Standards Act, Agri-food Choice and Quality Act, and the Agricultural Produce Grading Act
