What you need to know:
The EU organic regulation does not apply in Switzerland. The privately organised Bio Suisse organic standard is aimed at farmers, processors, and traders who want to sell organic products with a Bio Suisse label in Switzerland. Anyone wishing to supply organic products for sale or processing must be certified in accordance with the Bio Suisse standards so that the products can be labelled with the Bud logo in Switzerland. We are happy to carry out the Bio Suisse inspection for you in all countries where we are approved to do so.
Detailed information on Bio Suisse Organic International is available at www.icbag.ch
