Organic Plus Trust Inc. (“OPT”) develops verification systems for agricultural practices that contribute to public health and the environment. The OPT’s initial program offering is a Grass-Fed Organic Livestock Program© (“the OPT Livestock Program”), which is composed of standards governing on-farm practices and the associated verification mechanisms. The OPT Livestock Program trademarked seal can be affixed to products that are sold directly to consumers if the USDA-National Organic Program (NOP) certified operation meets the standards and verification mechanisms.
The OPT’s Certified Grass-Fed Organic Livestock Program™ sets the first national standard for grass-fed, organic ruminant livestock production for meat and dairy. An end to end, third-party certification for the entire supply chain, verifies all handling of certified products from birth to processing to sale. Organic. Grass-Fed. Trusted.

As a way to enhance the value of the USDA-National Organic Program (NOP), certified organic farms and processors are seeking elevated performance benchmarks. Our goal is to raise the trust bar by working with the existing system of USDA-NOP accredited certifying bodies to develop and share innovative tools ensuring compliance and accountability.
