Organic Agriculture - EC (European Commission)
The Organic Agriculture logo by the European Commission gives consumers confidence about the origin and quality of the food or drink. The presence of the logo on products guarantees compliance with EU regulations on organic agriculture. Since July 2010, every organic food product pre-packed in the European Union has to carry the EU's Organic Agriculture logo.
The logo is used by Dialcos to mark products that are free from any animal ingredients (meat, poultry, fish or their derivatives including eggs) and therefore suitable for vegetarians. The use of ingredients derived from milk and milk products are, however, allowed (lactose, sodium caseinate).
The Vegan logo is a trademark certified by the Vegan Society. This is granted to products that do not contain any animal ingredient or vegetable ingredients.
The Kosher symbol is issued by special rabbinical associations to products that overtake rigorous qualitative and production standards and that conform to the regulations of kashrut.
BRC (British Retail Consortium) and IFS (Internetional Food Standard) are two fundamental standards, at an international level, for quality certification in the supply chain of products to the large-scale retail trade. The BRC is based on quality standards that affect HACCP, the work environment and product and process controls. The IFS standard, on the other hand, is an international standard shared by the French and German agri-food supply chains. With it, suppliers of the supply chain are required to respect certain hygiene and good practices in the processes, valid to guarantee a good level of safety and quality.
