To be allowed to be called organic, products have to meet strict criteria. For example, they must be demonstrably free from GMO content (genetically modified organism), antibiotics and growth hormones. Production methods also have to be sustainable and the products must not contain food additives. A European logo and national logos safeguard the uniqueness of organic.
The predicate ‘organic’ therefore does not specifically relate to one or more categories of products, but it applies to all food and beverages, if produced and processed in line with these principles.
