Valley Fig Growers’ cooperative members are dedicated to bringing the best possible California Figs from their orchards to consumer’s tables. Our product line includes organic California figs and organic California fig products such as paste, concentrate, and diced figs.
Our processing plant in Fresno, California and our California figs have been certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) organization. CCOF helped plant the seeds that grew the organic movement into an industry. Funded in 1973, CCOF was the first organization to certify organic farms in North America. CCOF set uniform guidelines and worked to legally define organic.
CCOF only certifies farmers, processors, retailers and wholesalers who comply with their industry-setting standards and those required by state and national law. Their inspectors examine the crops, the land, the facilities, the process and the paperwork of applicants and members. CCOF’s inspection reports are then reviewed by two different groups of experts.
Our California figs and fig products adhere to the stringent requirements of the CCOF and are labeled accordingly: “Organically grown and processed in accordance with the California Organic Foods Act of 1990. Certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF).”
