What you need to know:
The Bioland association was founded in 1971 as "bio gemüse e.V.". In the meantime, around 10,000 farms belong to Bioland in Germany and South Tyrol. In addition to the association's seven principles, Bioland's fundamental values include biodiversity, climate and environmental issues, regionality, animal welfare and participation in agricultural politics. EU organic certification is a requirement for Bioland inspection by Kiwa BCS. Since the Bioland requirements go beyond those of the EU organic regulation, you can upgrade your products with a Bioland certification.

A Bioland certification with Kiwa BCS Öko-Garantie GmbH:
In order to initiate a Bioland certification, your business first needs a certification according to the current EU organic regulation. It is the basis for all further organic association certifications. An inspection according to the requirements for a Bioland certification is possible in the course of the EU organic inspection, or also independently of your annual inspection.
First, you contact the association, which places the inspection order with Kiwa BCS. We then take care of the scheduling and the inspection, after which Naturland evaluates the inspection report and makes the certification decision.
To ensure that this division of tasks works well, please contact both the association and Kiwa BCS directly.
