Concern about the abundance of "blended" and imitation "sorghum" labeled as pure, prompted the National Sweet Sorghum Producers and Processors Association to develop this logo whereby the use of this symbol assures the consumer of a pure, unadulterated product.
The cost to use the logo is a one time fee of $20.00 and a $0.05 voluntary contribution to a fund for product marketing and maintaining quality pure sweet sorghum syrup. Each NSSPPA member displaying this emblem has complied with the association's quality guidelines.
The logo, along with the member's identification number, gives sweet sorghum an identity and separates it from all other syrups in the marketplace. It permits the consumer to purchase with confidence.
