United States and Switzerland announce organic equivalency agreement

The United States and Switzerland have announced that beginning July 10, 2015, organic products certified in the United States or Switzerland may be sold as organic in either country. The organic equivalency arrangement between the two nations will streamline organic trade, strengthen organic agriculture, and support jobs and businesses on a global scale. 

Through arrangements with Canada, the European Union, Japan, and Korea, U.S. organic farmers and businesses have streamlined access to over $35 billion international organic markets. When combined with the $39 billion U.S. organic market, these arrangements have doubled the organic market access for U.S. organic farmers and businesses.
