I believe that reliable certification groups exist, for those that need them. If that is so, the problem is that consumers are not exercising their right (or their power) to have that certification demonstrated. They need to ask to see it. On the other hand, if locally grown products are involved, claims are both more easily verifiable and more easily denounced publicly or through legal channels. What you are doing here can certainly help. These things need to be brought out into the open.
