In addition to the agencies that inspect Eden as required by law — the FDA, USDA, Michigan Department of Agriculture, OSHA, etc. — Eden voluntarily participates with, and retains the inspection services of over a dozen agencies and organizations to verify our exceptional standards of organic, natural, non-GMO, and kosher authenticity; excellence in food safety and sanitation, safety in manufacturing and operations, and environmental stewardship. These include NSF International, the U.S. Department of Energy's Clean Cities Coalition, and the certifications below which we welcome you to view and download: OCIA, Non-GMO Project, OK Laboratories, AIB International, and C-TPAT.
OCIA International Organic Certification
One of the world's most trusted organic certifiers, the Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the highest quality organic certification services and committed to environmentally sound stewardship. OCIA has been Eden's primary organic certifier for over two decades.
The Non-GMO Project (The Project) was created by industry members from all of its sectors in the USA and Canada. The Project provides consumers and makers a 3rd party non-GMO verification program through all levels of the supply chain, thus providing verified non-GMO alternatives to the consumer.
As of today Eden enrolled 128 foods that have all been verified as compliant with the Non-GMO Project Standard, 80 foods in the U.S. and 48 in Canada.
Eden has been dedicated to certifying foods Kosher where possible for more than 30 years, and over 97 percent of EDEN foods are kosher certified. Eden chose the Organized Kosher Laboratories of New York, NY and their 'circle k' mark because of their reputation for authenticity and exacting detail dating back to 1935.
Eden has been a member with AIB International since 2001. Serving the food industry since 1919, AIB is committed to the strictest standards of food safety and conducts rigorous independent inspections, audits, and staff training.
U.S. Customs & Border Protection C-TPAT Security Certification
Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) is a joint government-business initiative to build cooperative relationships that strengthen overall supply chain and border security. Through this program Eden participates with the U.S. Customs Service to ensure the integrity of our security practices and to communicate our security guidelines to all of our business partners.
