Organic label

Labelling for products that at least meet the requirements of the EU Organic Regulation. In July 2010, a mandatory new organic label (also EU-Biosiegel, EU-Biologo) was introduced throughout the EU. It consists of a leaf stylised with 12 white stars on a green background (picture below left). In the meantime, non-EU countries are also aligning their regulations with the food law of the European organic label. A product can receive the European organic label 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.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
