What does 'Demeter' Standards mean?

Organic quality for naturally produced products

In organic farming, people, animals, plant and soil are respected and valued - the management in harmony with nature is at the forefront. Organic farmers guarantee a proper feeding and keeping of the animals, plant protection and fertilization without chemical-synthetic means and the care of the soil fertility. The food produced in this way is sustainable and gentle for the environment.

What does 'Demeter' mean?

Foods meeting the 'Demeter' qualification are grown according to the biological and dynamic guidelines.  The Demeter farmers always have the holistic quality of their products in view. Whether soil, seed, plant, animal or human being, each element has an important, irreplaceable function in agriculture and is interrelated, supports and strengthens it. In this way the farm forms a closed, very natural and living organism.
Chemical-synthetic fertilizers and spraying agents or genetic engineering are not allowed in biodynamic cultivation, nor is the admixture of serious additives during processing.

Demeter agriculture is unique in its consistency and wholeness and ensures that the biological and dynamic cultivation of nature returns more than it takes it.

The special Bioland quality

The Bioland Guidelines for farmers and manufacturers are even stricter than those of the EC Eco-Regulation, and are constantly being further developed. For example, the economic practices of the Bioland farms are based on a circulatory economy. Further information can be found on the Bioland Association website.

Comprehensive quality controls

The organic biofood is comprehensively controlled and tested by the certified farmer through the processing to the finished product. This is confirmed by the bio-marking visible on the product with the green EU organic logo and the eco-control number. For the products certified by the Bioland Association, producers and manufacturers are additionally tested for compliance with the Bioland guidelines by state-approved inspection bodies.

Baby food from organic agriculture

Organic Agriculture is the basis for nutritious high-quality infant milk and whole-grain baby food. Once you start feeding your child with our organic baby food, it will be able to enjoy high-quality organic nutrients with biological value.

Life promise of high quality baby food

All infant formulas, cereals and produce are produced whenever possible* according to the guidelines of the Bioland Association. All other organic foods are biologically certified and meet the strict requirements of organic agriculture.

Guaranteed no use of genetically engineered (GMO) ingredients

  • No chemical-synthetic fertilizer
  • No additives such as artificial flavors, dyes or preservatives
  • Natural compost instead of artificial fertilizer
  • Animal Welfare

* The conversion of some products to Bioland is not possible because Bioland producers only operate in Germany and South Tyrol and some products (for example, bananas, rice, mangoes) are not grown in these regions.
