Some producers may need to submit forms for certifying their processing and handling of harvested sea vegetables. For instance, if you are drying, blending and packaging sea vegetables for sale, you are considered a processor and we will need to approve your organic handling plan and your labels. If you have questions, please contact John Welton (firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-568-6032).
