Organic Handler Certificate:
Minnesota Crop Improvement Association

Most organic products pass through the hands of at least one middleman handler. Only certified organic handlers that meet organic standards under the USDA National Organic Program may handle organic products.

Processors and handlers must develop an Organic System Plan (OSP) which describes the manufacturing or handling process, the products being made or handled, their sanitation and pest management programs, their packaging and labeling plans, and the type of documentation that will be maintained. (NOP §205.201)

Facilities must be able to prevent commingling of organic and nonorganic products and ingredients and to prevent contact of organically produced products or ingredients with prohibited substances. (NOP §205.272)


The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry recognizes companies that exceed federal OSHA safety standards through the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (MnSHARP). This program encourages small, high-hazard employers like a warehousing and logistics firm, to implement and maintain exemplary safety and health management systems for their workplace and for employees. Murphy continues to meet all of the eligibility criteria and ongoing program requirements for MnSHARP. This keeps our employees and your product safe in our warehouses.
