Organic food

Event date: 11/04/2018

Organic food

Organic farming is an overall system of farm management and food production that respects natural life cycles. It minimises the human impact on the environment and operates as naturally as possible, in accordance with objectives and principles

The development of organic production is a political objective of the EU. Although its organic market has constantly expanded, the EU's organic land area still represents only 6% of the total agricultural area and the difference between EU demand and production is covered by growing imports.To overcome the regulatory obstacles to the  development of the sector and increase consumer confidence in the EU organic logo, in March 2014 the Commission adopted a proposal for a regulation on organic production and labelling of organic products, repealing Regulation No 834/2007.
