Recent work in bio-informatics search widely for a greater order in biochemical pathways.
One way to do this, is by arranging metabolic networks hierarchically.
On the oder hand, molecules and enchainments of biochemical reactions have, since long, been described by means of graphs.
We show that the outcome of these efforts are organizations, in a formal sense to be made precise, and that graphs and hierarchy lead to a mathematical construct ``hierarchical graphs'' that are mathematical representations of organizations.
