Organically produced food is produced based on certain standards regulated and prescribed by the IFOAM World Association. It is prohibited to use conventional pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, growth hormones, antibiotics and any kind of gene processing.

Different labels for organically produced products are used in Europe and around the world, depending on which country the product comes from. Independent tests show the high reliability of these labels. In Europe, reliability is between 90% and 97%, depending on the country. An additional assurance that you really have purchased an eco-food is that the trader will grant you access to the certificate of the control organization that carried out the control of the food. This certificate must contain the origin of the organic food and the unique number of a registered firm or farm.

The labels BIO, ECO and organic are registered and strictly controlled labels that are subject to very strict rules for their use.
Conditions for obtaining a certificate:

  • At least 95% of the ingredients must be from ecological farming and must be traceable,
  • A list of possible additives is limited to additives of natural origin only,
  • Genetically modified enzymes or synthetically manufactured ingredients are not processed,
  • The rearing of animals requires very strict criteria, such as: a ban on the use of antibiotics and hormones, a requirement for the number of days that the animals must spend outdoors, organic food, etc..
