How to identify Organic in Europe?
Europe is way ahead of any markets when compared for the demand and management of Organic Products.
The European Organic Logo defines the standards for all Organic Products produced in the European Union.
Products labelled as "Organic" are those certified as having been produced through clearly defined organic production methods. In other words, "Organic" is a claim on the production process rather than a claim on the product itself.
