New Brunswick Adopts Strict Canadian Organic Guidelines

July 15, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Canada’s New Brunswick Province has issued new organic rules designed to ensure that products labeled as organic meet strict national standards. The Canadian government implemented organic regulations five years ago that provide for certification and yearly inspection of products that cross provincial borders. So far, only New Brunswick, Quebec and Manitoba have adopted the strict guidelines within their own borders. Organic agriculture has tripled in the country since the start of the recession and is now worth more than $3.5 billion annually.
