The EU Organic logo
A new EU-wide organic logo was introduced in 2010. It can be awarded to products containing a maximum of 0.9% genetically modified material and a minimum of 95% ingredients originating from organic cultivation.
The EU Organic label stands for the highest legally secured food standard. A separate ecological aquaculture section has been incorporated in the EU eco basic regulation that has been applicable since 2010. It seeks to ensure that fish farming is controlled with regard to health and ecological conditions. For instance, the fish stock density must not exceed 25 kg/m³. Only spawn and young fish may be kept in a low-emission closed-loop system. Only ecologically produced feed is permitted; vegetable ingredients in the feed of meat-eating fish are only authorised to a limited extent.
State organic certification is aimed exclusively at individual consumers.
