How does it work?

Consistent with other Clean Label Project Codes of Practice, this Pesticide-Free Code of Practice looks to minimize direct consumer exposure to residual pesticides. While laws and tolerances exist around specific maximum pesticide levels on a variety of commodity crops, consumers ultimately want to reduce or eliminate, where possible, their and their family’s direct exposure and consumption of these chemicals. To that end, Clean Label Project Code of Practice: Pesticide-free identifies the most commonly used pesticides for different commodity crops and then samples and tests products seeking compliance to this Code of Practice to ensure the absence of these chemicals in the finished product.
