FoodChain ID, a leading food safety, testing, and sustainability organization, is now the exclusive certifying body for the U.S. Hemp Authority (USHA) Certification seal.

According to a press release from FoodChain ID, USHA Certification helps farmers, product manufacturers, marketers, and retailers secure mainstream market share by appealing to consumer and trade concerns about the veracity of product claims and serves to legitimize the evolving hemp/CBD consumer product category. USHA developed comprehensive guidance for growers, processors/manufacturers, and brand owners of ingestible and cosmetic hemp products. Participants are licensed to use the Certified Seal of the U.S. Hemp Authority after meeting stringent self-regulatory standards, passing an independent third-party audit, and entering into a Licensing Agreement. “The U.S. Hemp Authority Certification Program is our industry’s initiative to provide high standards, best practices, and self-regulation, giving consumers an easy way to identify hemp-derived products that can be trusted,” says Marielle Weintraub, president of the USHA. “We are striving for ingredient transparency and truth in labeling.”
