OUR ORGANIC PRACTICES

OUR ORGANIC PRACTICES

Distribution 2000 offer OTCO certified organic food and product storage and transport.

Certified to handle organic foods

At Distribution 2000, we excel in handling organic foods and products with the care and attention they deserve. Because specialty food handling is so core to our business we have put in place comprehensive measures to ensure the organic integrity of the products entrusted to our care. We have also sought third party certification to ensure our clients have peace of mind that we are implementing the very best in organic food and product handling practices.

USDA National Organic Program compliant

We are a USDA National Organic Program compliant warehouse (NOP). This means we strictly avoid using sanitizers, caustic solutions or fumigants to ensure organic integrity. All pest control is also independently carried out in accordance with USDA organic standards. OTCO certifying agents carry out regular onsite inspections to ensure we comply with USDA organic standards.
