Certified South Carolina Product
Products that are eligible for inclusion in this program include agricultural products and food products that are manufactured or processed in the state that may or may not always include ingredients grown exclusively in South Carolina. This includes value-added products, manufactured food products, and other agricultural products that may be further sorted, graded, blended, processed and packaged in South Carolina. In addition, specialty agricultural food businesses, with a South Carolina address and company label, may have an exclusive recipe manufactured in another state and still be eligible for membership in this program.
All items that shall bear or potentially bear the logo, including those that may potentially be included in promotional efforts, should be included on the application for approval by the SCDA. New items must also be sent to the SCDA for approval so that member product listings can be updated. All products must meet the accepted USDA or FDA industry standards for that product. Any processed, cooked or manufactured items must be produced and packaged to accepted industry standards in an approved kitchen or facility.
