Summary

CERTCOST, a European research project on the system of certification of organic food ran from 2008 until November 2011 with the aim of providing recommendations to improve the efficiency, transparency, and cost effectiveness of organic food certification systems in Europe. ORC became a project partner in 2009 when Susanne Padel joined us from Aberystwyth University. This article reviews some of the findings relating to certification and non compliance.
