Regenerative Organic Certified (ROC) is a certification for food, fiber, and personal care ingredients. The goal of ROC is to promote holistic agriculture practices in an all-encompassing certification that increases soil organic matter over time and sequesters carbon below and above ground, which could be a tool to mitigate climate change, improves animal welfare, and provides economic stability and fairness for farmers, ranchers, and workers.

ROC consists of three pillars: Soil Health and Land Management, Animal Welfare, and Farmer & Worker Fairness. ROC has three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each requires a different number and scope of regenerative organic practices used. Regenerative practices are described in each module that include important practices referred to and built upon in the their framework.

For chemical and transitional producers, familiarity with these practices and definitions can serve as the first step in incorporating regenerative practices into their operation. ROC is overseen by the nonprofit Regenerative Organic Alliance (ROA). The ROA is a group of experts in farming, ranching, soil health, animal welfare, and farmer & worker fairness. The ROA has been established to continuously review and update the ROC guidelines.
