If I buy organic food grown in another country, do the same organic standards apply?

    Organic food from other countries might not have the same standards as here in the United States. In the US, organic standards are set by the government, as with some other countries. But not all countries apply this rule. In the US, Japan, and Europe, “organic” can only be used by certified producers, but their standards for what is organic might be somewhat different. There are some international discussions occurring, attempting to create standardized organic legislation to help facilitate international trade. There are also international certification bodies, including members of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), the Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA), and Ecocert.
