OGDEN, UTAH, Nov. 6, 2012—Trace Minerals Research (TMR), a leading provider of trace mineral based supplements for almost 40 years, announces that ConcenTrace® Trace Mineral Drops and ConcenTrace® Agricultural has been reviewed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) and is allowed for use in certified organic production or food processing and handling according to the United States Division of Agriculture (USDA) National Organic Program (NOP) Rule. Having a product OMRI Listed® is important for TMR’s continued success as it markets its bulk ingredients to the food and beverage industry.
“Having ConcenTrace® OMRI Listed® is a huge step for us because it allows manufacturers of certified organic foods and beverages to use our product with full confidence,” said James Crawford, Bulk Sales Manager for TMR. “These manufacturers can now enhance their organic products by fortifying them with over 72 ionic trace minerals from the Great Salt Lake. This is very exciting for us.”
In order to get both ConcenTrace® products OMRI Listed®, TMR submitted product information to OMRI, including all ingredients and manufacturing processes. OMRI specialists reviewed the formula according to strict procedures and guidelines to determine compliance with NOP standards. Once a product is OMRI Listed®, farmers, processors, certifiers and home gardeners trust that it is allowed in USDA certified organic operations.
TMR chose OMRI because of its more than 2,500 listed products, 14 years of experience, and proven, ISO-accredited, review procedures and because organic certifiers routinely reference the OMRI Products List to ensure that the ingredients they’re using are compliant with organic regulations.
