Donate to IOIA today to help us maintain our high standard of training programs,
and to help build new programs that continue to provide both initial training and
continuing education for professional inspectors.
Inspectors provide a critical link between the certification process and consumers. IOIA-trained inspectors are on the ground, at farms and processing facilities, ensuring that the integrity of the certification process is maintained. Certification = Verification and verification of organic standards costs money, as does providing cutting-edge training to inspectors to keep them at the
top of the game.

Your donation enables us to keep the level of organic consumer protection at a level that inspires confidence in organic agriculture worldwide.
