The USDA National Organic Program (NOP) defines organic as follows:
Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled “organic,” a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.
In fact, we are the first juice company in the world to be certified Glyphosate Residue Free by the Detox Project.

We are now having to supplement our U.S. orange juice with organic supply from Mexico. Because we, along with the entire Florida citrus industry, have been affected by citrus greening disease, we must go outside the U.S. for additional orange juice supply.
Rest assured our Mexican partners are USDA certified and must legally adhere to the same strict USDA standards that we abide by at Uncle Matt’s Organic. However, Uncle Matt’s Organic remains committed to local sourcing and still uses a vast majority of USA-sourced oranges for our delicious organic OJ. Our goal is still to source all USA oranges and our OJ will return to being fully USA sourced as soon as conditions allow.
By supporting organic farmers, you are helping companies create a more sustainable future.
And, by buying organic, you can feel good about the fact that you are promoting a much cleaner method for producing food that is healthy for you, your family and the planet.
