On 27th December 27, 2006, Miyazakien got certified as an organic JAS for the first time as a tea farmer in Aichi Prefecture. The photograph on the left is “Certificate of Organic Agricultural Production Process Administrator Certificate” received.
Currently, in Japan, registration accreditation body inspects that production conforming to the JAS standard of organic foods is being done, only certified companies can affix organic JAS mark. Displaying the name of “organic” or “organic product” etc., and display that is confusing to this are prohibited by law in agricultural products and agricultural processed foods which do not have this “organic JAS mark”. For details, please refer to Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries’s “Organic food inspection certification system page“.
