Welcome to the BioPreferred® Catalog

USDA's BioPreferred® Program Catalog is designed to assist users in identifying products that qualify for mandatory federal purchasing, are certified through the voluntary labeling initiative, or both. If a product meets or exceeds the minimum biobased content requirements for one or more product categories that have been identified by USDA for mandatory federal purchasing, USDA considers the product to be "qualified." If a product achieves third-party verification of its biobased content for one or more product categories, USDA considers this product to be "certified."

Companies with biobased products voluntarily submit their product information for inclusion in this Catalog, so not all biobased products available in the marketplace are represented. Although you cannot purchase a product directly from this Catalog, sourcing information, such as product details and company websites, is provided.*

Label Mark

Label Mark

Voluntary Labeling

This symbol indicates that a product or packaging is USDA Certified Biobased. These products have earned USDA certification and approval to display the USDA Certified Biobased Product label.
