Organic Consultants List Now Available

In response to a demand for advice, information and expertise on organic certification and inspection from
businesses interested in transitioning to organic, the Organic Council of Ontario has posted a list of Organic Consultants operating within Ontario. organic consultant camera

If you are looking to transition to certified organic, are considering changing your practices and wonder if they meet the standards, need advice on non-compliances, or want to ensure that you are prepared for inspection, an Organic Consultant might be of help to you.

Individuals included in the list have received training from the International Organic Inspectors Association, and are qualified to provide advice on organic certification and information on how the organic standards are generally interpreted by certifying bodies. Some individuals specialize in organic production or processing. Please be sure to read each consultant’s bio and list of qualifications on our website and on the IOIA directory before contacting a consultant, to ensure that their expertise will meet your needs.

Consultants who also work as inspectors are not permitted to consult for businesses for whom they have performed an inspection in the last year. Please be cognizant of the fact that Organic Consultants are running a business – fee structures may vary, and not all consultants will be willing to provide free advice over the phone.
