T. Hasegawa USA, Inc., has established organic certification at its Cerritos, California.
The certification comes from the USDA National Organic Program (NOP), and marks the company’s second manufacturing facility to achieve the designation (the other is located in Corona).
“Certified organic flavors from Cerritos are a crucial extension of our line of clean-label offerings to customers,” said CEO Tom Damiano. “As our company continues to grow, we are able to partner with more and more organic projects around the world, thereby supporting organic practices, fair wages, and economic development.”
“We are proud to have met the rigorous standards of one of the leading organic certifiers in the United States so we can help brands provide organic options to their customers,” added quality control manager Nancy Wang. “We are committed to the highest quality and food safety standards in the flavor industry. Meeting this organic benchmark is further confirmation that we continue to meet these standards.”
