Emerald Twist is a Clean Green Certified (CGC) operation. The CGC program is based on National and International Organic and Sustainable Farming Methods. The certification process includes on-site inspections, review of farming methods & record keeping, use of natural, non-synthetic sprays & fertilizers and encompasses soil care, planting, growing, harvesting, handling, processing, packaging & labeling.
The standards for Clean Green Certified are the same as the standards for USDA organic. There is a large list of materials (mostly fertilizers and pesticides) that must be studied to ensure they meet the standards before being used at Emerald Twist farms. Many fertilizers and pesticides used in conventional agriculture are toxic to people and the environment, and are energy intensive to produce.
