Rowan’s Royale got an email from CERES our German-based Organic certifier. The email reminded us that we need to send in our OMP – our Organic Management Plan. Every year, like Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, the reminder for the OMP comes along. Then I knuckle down and complete and send if off.

This is the first step in the verification process which brings an inspector to Jamaica to verify our farm production activities, our processing and export and our full documentation of every step.

This year, although we sent in the OMP many months ago, COVID restrictions prevent the inspection visit.

So a new approach. The verification will be done via Skype and perhaps Whatsapp for a walk through on the farm.

I will share with you how this digital inspection will all work out. Perhaps you can join me on a walk through of the farm
