Organic Certifications

Has anyone seen this certification brand?  QAI -Quality Assurance International — a stylized Q with earth shaped grid in center and words “Quality Assurance International” on edge of circle inside the Q.  At one time the brand included the words “certified organic” in the logo.

When you buy fresh produce, check that the organic certification brand is visible.  Learn about standards by visiting the websites of regulatory agencies for the countries that provide the food that you buy and eat.
