Kootenay Organic Growers Society (KOGS) is a not for profit Kootenay-based certifying organization serving organic growers in the East and West Kootenays. We are committed to supporting and strengthening organic agriculture and related businesses in our home region.

As a certifier, we are responsible for ensuring that farmers and processors certified by KOGS meet the Canadian Organic Standards and can therefore legitimately market their product as ‘BC Certified Organic’. We are one of 11 certifying bodies accredited by the Certified Organic Associations of BC and operate under the Regional Program of COABC (for certified products to be sold only within BC).
