Biological / Organic

'Organic' means as natural as possible. In organic farming there is no fertilizer, no chemical or synthetic pesticides used or genetically modified organisms. Animals are kept under most natural conditions. You cannot just call a product organic. Production must meet certain legal requirements. And this is strictly monitored for compliance.

There are strict rules for use of this label, the most important is that a product should consist for more than 95% of organic ingredients.

Biodynamic agriculture stems from anthroposophy, a view of life in the early 20th century and was developed by the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner. The principle is that there is a correlation between plants, animals, soil and cosmos. For example, it aims at a cycle of own food and own manure. In addition, licensees must also comply with EU standards for organic production. Biodynamic products are recognized by the Demeter quality brand; the check is performed by Skal and the Association for Biodynamic Agriculture and Food.
