The mixed bag of the EU organic food label

EU organic food label

Many people assume that organic production of food results in healthier food with a higher nutritional value. Hence they buy food produced according to EU rules of "organic farming". The first set of rules was introduced in 1991 and it was amended a couple of times. If you want to market your food as "organic" within the EU and use the EU organic food logo, you need to adhere to these rules.
Often the same people that usually are very critical towards EU legislation take it for granted that the EU did a good job with its organic farming directive. Unfortunately, that is not the case.
