EU Organic

Few things about EU Organic

Organic farmers, processors and traders, must comply with strict EU requirements if they want to use the EU organic logo or label their products as organic. So whenever you buy organic food, you can be confident that it has been produced in accordance with strict environmental and animal welfare rules and checked accordingly.

The EU requires an equally strict control system with checks carried out at every stage of the organic chain. Every operator (farmer, processor, trader, importer or exporter) is checked at least once a year, or more often on the basis of risk assessment.
