Sobre Nós

PCO is a USDA-accredited organic certifying agency that educates and certifies growers, processors, and handlers of organic crops, wild crops, livestock, and livestock products in the contiguous United States. PCO is also proud to be an accredited certifying agent for OPT Certified Grass-Fed Organic Certification, which is a separate program that builds upon the organic standards.


PCO's vision: A world where agriculture systems prioritize health, ecological balance, fairness, and care.

PCO's mission: To uphold and advance organic principles and practices through certification, advocacy, and technical support.

PCO’S CORE VALUES:

Our core values serve as a guide for how PCO works and makes decisions every day. Through our Core Values we recognize the interdependent relationships between all our stakeholders: certified clients, supporters and members, PCO staff and contractors, partner organizations, and the community and environment.

We keep people at the center of every action, interaction, and decision. We do this by:

  • Caring intensely about our stakeholders and their ability to succeed.
  • Showing deep respect for human beings inside and outside our company and for the communities in which they live.
  • Listening well and seeking to understand before reacting.
  • Being empowered to provide proactive solutions.
  • Communicating in a clear and timely manner.


We promote restorative practices that improve the world for future generations. We do this by:

  • Providing sensible enforcement and understanding how that impacts people, the environment, and the organic industry.
  • Creating a network of support by connecting stakeholders to resources.
  • Being an advocate for PCO and the industry – building trust in organics from the inside out.

Embrace transparency and integrity in all our work. We do this by:

  • Embracing humility, owning mistakes, and honoring commitments.
  • Actively welcoming and giving constructive feedback.
  • Fostering a participatory workplace through inclusive discussion and decision-making.

At PCO we strive to promote a work culture that promotes caring, purpose, and results.
