Global Organics, Ltd., Arlington, Mass., has introduced EcoSocial certified organic sugar to North America. The certification integrates economic, social and environmental criteria.

"We’re pleased to have finally found a certification that reflects the values our company has always tried to uphold in our relationships," said Dave Alexander, founder and president of Global Organics, a supplier of organic ingredients.

IBD Certifications, Botucatu, Brazil, launched EcoSocial. The certification has traceability requirements in that organic producers and their partners must make transparent to the public the specific projects they support and the funds being allocated to those projects. It requires participating growers and organizations to choose at least two social and two ecological goals to be supported by premiums generated from the sale of their products.

To be certified EcoSocial, a product must be certified organic under the rules of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Program.
