Our certifications and quality labels

An organic farming label is a certification of the production method of products from organic farming. This certification is chargeable, all farmers producing organic products do not necessarily have a label. For the organic food chain, any company involved can be certified, including seed companies, farmers, food manufacturers, distributors and restaurateurs.

Organic certification requires that farmers and handlers document their processes and be inspected annually. Biological on-site inspections take into account each component of the operation, including but not limited to seed sources, soil conditions, crop health, weed and pest control, water systems, inputs, contamination and mixing hazards and prevention, and record keeping. Part of the USDA’s organic promise is tracing organics from start to finish.

USDA certified organic foods are grown and processed according to federal guidelines for, among many factors, soil quality, husbandry practices, pest and weed control, and the use of additives.

Ecocert is a French organic certification body approved by the Directorate of Industry. Ecocertified manufacturers have their ingredients and processes checked twice a year by Ecocert to ensure that it complies with all the rules of the organic certification standard.

At least 95% of all ingredients are of natural origin. Maximum 5% synthetic content is allowed. All non-natural ingredients must belong to the positive list of harmless synthetic ingredients created by Ecocert. All processes (including harvesting, extraction methods, etc.) are audited and eco-certified. No synthetic fragrances, dyes, petroleum derivatives, polymers, parabens or other potentially harmful substances. No animal testing. Only animal by-products which do not directly jeopardize the life of animals and whose use does not affect the ecological balance can still be used (beeswax, honey, milk, etc.).

ECOCERT is accredited by the USDA to certify your products from organic farming according to the NOP (National Organic Program) regulations, in the United States.

The United States and Europe have signed a historical equivalence allowing European operators certified according to the European standard (RCE 834/2007 and its implementing regulations) to label and sell their products as organic in the United States and to the American operators certified according to the NOP (National Organic Program) to label and sell their products as organic in European Member States without the need to be certified according to the standard of the country of destination.

Certification BRC – British Retail Consortium –

The British Retail Consortium (Consortium of British Distributors), a British organization bringing together distributors of agri-food products, developed in 1996 a “Technical Reference for Companies Suppliers of Private Label Products”. By extension, this repository is also called BRC. The BRC aims to define a common basis of food safety requirements for manufacturers of private label products on the UK market and thus to standardize audits.

The AB certification mark identifies products that are 100% organic or contain at least 95% organic agricultural products in the case of processed products. This AB logo is the “French” version of the European logo below.

Like the AB logo, the European logo “organic farming” also called “Eurofeuille” aims to identify products containing 100% of ingredients resulting from the organic production method or at least 95% of organic agricultural products in the case of processed products, if the remaining part is not available in organic and expressly authorized. Its presence on the labeling ensures compliance with the European Union’s organic farming regulations, compliance with the rules of the official control and certification system, and the mention of the name of the producer, preparer or distributor and the number approval of the certification body. To obtain certification and display the words “product from organic farming”, products sold in Europe must be checked in accordance with the official Organic Farming Regulations by a control body approved by the public authorities. Our organic products are controlled by ECOCERT France SAS (FR-BIO-01). All our certified products are certified by this independent body approved by the public authorities (www.ecocert.fr).
