Food Safety Certifiers

What we do

Food Safety Certifiers (FSC) is a division of Organic Certifiers (OC), which has been providing USDA organic certification to the agricultural industry since it opened its doors in 1997. Due to the increased demand of food safety certification from its organic clients, Organic Certifiers founded its food safety division, FSC, in 2012. Today, FSC provides reliable, efficient, and cost-effective certification services to organic and conventional farmers, handlers, and distributors in need of the Primus Standard and PrimusGFS GAP and GMP benchmarks.

Our History

Organic Certifiers was established by the Siple family in Ventura County, California. Susan and Randolph Siple started OC from observing the frustrations of achieving certification. With the combination of their experience as organic farmers and private practice lawyers, Susan and Randolph knew they would make the perfect certification team. In 1996, they commenced OC and began certifying local organic farmers using a common sense approach.

In 2002, OC was one of the first certification agencies to become accredited to the USDA NOP (National Organic Program) standard. OC began to steadily grow and gain respect in the organic community. Today, OC has grown to be California’s 3rd largest certification agency. OC continues to approach organic certification with a focus on “sound and sensible” by offering reasonable information requests, quick response time, and forming one-on-one relationships between OC representatives and clients.
