Certified American Grown (CAG), announces a new membership category for potted plant farms, which seeks to provide American farms selling into the vibrant domestic marketplace an opportunity to let consumers know they have a choice to support domestic farmers, families, and communities.
The Certified American Grown seal has become a nationally recognized brand mark and is supported by retailers, florists, designers, and farms throughout the country. The ability for consumers to recognize the iconic red, white, and blue seal allows for better-informed decisions in their buying practices.
“Consumers are increasingly looking to better know where the products they are buying come from and knowing that they have the opportunity to support U.S. farms is becoming increasingly of interest,” noted Camron King, CEO and Ambassador for Certified American Grown. “Now, when someone seeks to purchase potted plants, be they in a floral department, florist, or even large retail, nursery, or home improvement store, farms supplying these outlets can become members of Certified American Grown and proudly use the seal on their products. We feel like this is the next step in ensuring our homegrown farms are properly supported.”
The new membership category ensures that the country of origin is highlighted on products. The trademarked Certified American Grown seal is another way for companies to create a value-added proposition in the market. Becoming a certified member of the association allows for the members to be licensed to use the seal on the packaging. Farms can become members by completing an application online: Become a Member.
