Henningsen Facilities Receive Organic USDA Certification

Henningsen Cold Storage received USDA Organic Certification after Oregon Tilth evaluated its Portland, OR facilities. Both of the company’s Portland warehouses met the strict requirements set forth by USDA’s National Organic Program. Among other things, organic certification requires extensive effort and documentation to ensure organic products never commingle with nonorganic products.

Organic food consumption has increased significantly in the past 15 years, with sales increasing from $3.5 billion in 1996 to $28.6 billion in 2010. In addition, the amount of American land dedicated to organic crops has doubled since 1997. Henningsen, always anticipating its customers’ needs and the growing demand for organic products, responded by making its Portland warehouses USDA Organic certified. Oregon Tilth is a nonprofit organization and is also an accredited USDA organic certification agency.
