Identity Preserved

Identity preservation refers to a system of production, handling and marketing practices that maintains the integrity and purity of agricultural commodities.

SK Food International's Premium Identity Program is our rigorous step-by-step Identity Preservation program which ensures the integrity of our certified organic and conventional non-GMO ingredients to meet our Premium Quality Ingredient standards. Our Premium Identity Program manages each production stage from seed selection, planting, growing, harvesting, storage, transportation, processing, packaging and delivery. This is possible with the support of our qualified growers, staff, certified third-party inspection agencies, certified third-party laboratories, processors, including SK Food Specialty Processing, and trucking companies.

Certified Organic

Organic certification is a certification process for producers of organic food and other organic agricultural products. In general, any business directly involved in food production can be certified, including seed suppliers, farmers, food processors, retailers and restaurants. Requirements vary from country to country, and generally involve a set of production standards for growing, storage, processing, packaging and shipping that include:

  • avoidance of most synthetic chemical inputs (e.g. fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, food additives, etc), genetically modified organisms, irradiation, and the use of sewage sludge;
  • use of farmland that has been free from chemicals for a number of years (often, three or more);
  • keeping detailed written production and sales records (audit trail);
  • maintaining strict physical separation of organic products from non-certified products;
  • undergoing periodic (yearly) on-site inspections.

SK Food International is certified organic as a handler/trader by USDA-accredited certification agency, Quality Assurance International, for NOP, EU Compliance and JAS.


Non-GMO Project Verified

GMOs (or “genetically modified organisms”) are organisms that have been created through the gene-splicing techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering, or GE).

The Non-GMO Project is an initiative of the North American organic and natural product industry to create a standardized definition of non-GMO and a 3rd party verification program to assess product compliance with this Standard. The Project's Product Verification Program is entirely voluntary, and participants are companies who see the value of offering their customers a verified non-GMO choice. Many of the individuals and businesses leading the way with the Project are the same ones responsible for creating the original organic standards.
