Washington, D.C. – Today, the House Agriculture Committee’s Biotechnology, Horticulture, and Research Subcommittee held a hearing to examine the National Organic Program. After the hearing, Subcommittee Ranking Member Neal Dunn (FL-2) made the following remarks:

“Consumer demand for organically produced goods continues to provide market incentives for U.S. farmers and ranchers across a broad range of products. The 2018 Farm Bill made great strides to help maintain the integrity of the National Organic Program and protect American farmers by requiring additional import documentation and stronger oversight of certifying agents operating in foreign countries to name a few. I thank Under Secretary Ibach for his work on this and will continue working with USDA to ensure that the National Organic Program remains a strong marketing tool for farmers and ranchers.”
