Organic farming is an agricultural system that seeks to provide you, the consumer, with certified food while respecting natural life-cycle systems.
Organic farming relies on a number of objectives and principles, as well as common practices designed to minimize the human impact on the environment, while ensuring the agricultural system operates as naturally as possible.
The current EU organic legislation sets out rules for plant and animal production and for the processing of food and feed to be labeled as organic.
Compliance with the EU organic legislation is required for all products carrying the EU organic logo. In order to being able to trace organic products, the name or code number of the certification body that has certified the organic producer, has to be on the label.
