The German Agricultural Society was founded in 1885 by Max Eyth (1836-1906). It is an organisation of the German agricultural and food industry with its headquarters in Frankfurt am Main and around 20,000 members. The non-profit association is financed by membership fees, their income for services and public subsidies. The primary objective is to promote quality for the agricultural and food industry and to make scientific and technical findings available and suitable for practical use. More than 50 technical committees, working groups and commissions with around 1,000 volunteer experts from science and practice work at the DLG Technical Centre. At the "DLG Test Center Food" in Frankfurt am Main, foodstuffs such as bread, beer, dairy products and wine are intensively tested and high-quality products are awarded in the three levels bronze, silver or gold. The "DLG test" certifies that the product is of high quality.
