Organic certification

Organic certification

People are becoming increasingly wary of the ecological, social and health issues associated with conventional industrial food production. Bureau Veritas organic certification and auditing services support you in meeting the growing demand for organics.

Consumers are perpetually seeking healthy, safe, environmentally and ethically responsible food options. This is driving tremendous growth in the organic food market. “Organic” is a labeling term that refers to food and agricultural products produced in strict accordance with a specific set of production standards. Though organic food certification differs from region to region, they typically cover the entire value chain, from production, to processing, to distribution.

Bureau Veritas offers a range of certification, auditing and testing services that support food players in meeting the various organic certification requirements that govern organic food production (according to EC Regulations No. 834/2207 and 889/2008). We enable you to demonstrate your compliance with sustainability and animal welfare standards, and that your products are free of hormones, antibiotics, synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and other harmful substances.
