June 19, 2014

USDA label helps consumers feel secure in the accuracy of the biobased amounts contained in the product.

Barnhardt Manufacturing Company has earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label for its HiLoft cotton. The label verifies that the product’s amount of renewable biobased ingredients meets or exceeds levels set by USDA. Biobased products are finished or intermediate materials composed in whole or in significant part of agricultural, forestry or marine ingredients.

“This logo/label will allow our HiLoft cotton to be immediately identified as a certified USDA BioPreferred product," says Chuck Allen, director of product development at Barnhardt.”

All biobased amount claims are verified by independent labs and monitored by the USDA.

"We are proud that Barnhardt Manufacturing Company has earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label," says Ron Buckhalt, USDA BioPreferred program manager. "Biobased products add value to renewable agriculture commodities, create jobs in rural communities and help our nation decrease its reliance on foreign-sourced and non-renewable petroleum."

The label is estimated to be on certified products and available for consumers by June 18, 2014.
