Bio seal

Labelling for products that at least meet the requirements of the EU Organic Regulation. In addition, there are private labels such as Bioland, DEMETER, ECOVIN and Naturland, which have extended, and in some cases stricter, requirements. In July 2010, a binding new organic label (also EU organic label, EU Biologo) was introduced throughout the EU. It consists of a leaf stylised with 12 white stars and a green background. In the meantime, non-EU countries are also aligning their regulations with the food law of the European organic seal. A product can receive the European organic seal if it contains no more than 0.9% genetically modified material and at least 95% of the ingredients come from organic/organic cultivation. In organic viticulture, organic certification is required; see Organic viticulture and organic wine.
