AGMARK Registration

 

Agmark Registration (Agricultural Marketing and Grading) is a mark that is certified by the government. Governed under the Agricultural Produce (Grading & Marking) Act, 1937 and a 1986 Amendment, this certification demonstrates that the agricultural items are of a good standard as well as good quality.

Agmark is a mix of two words: AG+MARK, where AG represents agriculture and Mark represents certification.

    What is Agmark?

    The Agmark certification acts as a benchmark for quality and is equivalent to vouching for the authenticity of the products. Agmark is governed by the Agricultural Produce (Grading and Marking) Act, 1937 (as amended in 1986). Agmark Standards, presently, cover approximately 222 agricultural items, including cereals, pulses, vegetable oil, and other semi-processed goods. The Agmark certification, for the most part, is a voluntary certification, unless expressly made compulsory as per the provisions of the Food Safety and Standards (Prohibition and Restriction on Sales) Regulations, 2011.

    The Government of India grants the Agmark certification. This mark incorporates:-

    • Agricultural and horticultural items.
    • Food and beverages that are either entirely produced or partly produced and partly manufactured.

    What are the advantages of the Agmark registration? 

                      Certain benefits of Agmark registration are mentioned below-
    • The Agmark registration adds legal significance and benefits to an agricultural produce.
    • If a product has the Agmark registration, it gives the consumer the assurance about the organic integrity and quality of the product.
