OMRI Certification
September 24, 2018

Organic Salt? Unfortunately, there isn’t any organic certification for salt. Salt is an inorganic mineral that can never be certified organic. Our newest technical sales member Ryan Wurtz took the lead by guiding NSC Minerals through the steps for the next best thing which is “OMRI listed”. OMRI stands for Organic Materials Review Institute which is an international non-profit organization that determines which input products are allowed for use in organic product and processing. Both our Vanscoy and Rocanville feed salt has been approved and are the newest mineral added to the OMRI list. OMRI listed products are allowed for use in certified organic operations under the USDA National organic program and the Canadian organic standards. OMRI lists input products such as fertilizers, pest controls, and livestock care products that are compliant with organic standards. These input products are then used to produce organic food and fiber that are then certified by an accredited certifying body. By focusing exclusively on inputs, OMRI provides essential expertise to support the organic certification process. This wouldn’t have been possible without our operations group that make sure our quality assurance policies are enforced at every level in the supply chain. Everything is better with a little salt!
