Farm like the world depends on it.
Regenerative Organic Certified (ROC) is a revolutionary new certification for food, fiber, and personal care ingredients. ROC farms and products meet the highest standards for soil health, animal welfare, and farmworker fairness.
ROC is overseen by the 501(c)3 nonprofit Regenerative Organic Alliance.

Regenerative Organic Certified was established in 2017 by a group of farmers, business leaders, and experts in soil health, animal welfare, and social fairness collectively called the Regenerative Organic Alliance.
We exist to heal a broken system, repair a damaged planet, and empower farmers and eaters to create a better future through better farming.
By adopting regenerative organic practices on more farms around the world, we can create long-term solutions to some of the biggest issues of our time, including the climate crisis, factory farming, and fractured rural economies.
We envision a world free of poisonous chemicals, factory farming, exploitation and income inequality, soil degradation, habitat destruction, pollution, short-term thinking, corporate bullies, greenwashing, and fake food.
Instead, we imagine a world in which farmers, brands, policymakers, educators, researchers, and individuals join together to create a healthy food system that respects land and animals, empowers people, and restores communities and ecosystems through regenerative organic farming.
We value the health of our incredible, interconnected planet and all who call it home—those above and below ground.
To ensure a healthy planet, abundant and nutritious food, and thriving people long into the future, we believe in continuously improving the way we farm.
To continuously improve, we believe in collaboration with innovative farmers, researchers, educators, policymakers, businesses, individuals, and others. None of us can do this alone.
Journey to Regenerative Organic Certification
Regenerative Organic Certification was created to leverage and bring together existing high-bar certifications in order to avoid duplicative audits or burdensome paperwork. With USDA Organic certification as a baseline, Regenerative Organic Certification recognizes the strong work already conducted by existing animal welfare and social fairness standard bodies, and therefore, leverages this work as part of the journey to Regenerative Organic Certification.
The following organizations provide financial and other support to the Regenerative Organic Alliance as we pursue healthier soils, higher animal welfare, and fairness for farmers and workers.
