Overview of the key Organic Certifications

Reassuring consumers with Organic Chocolate means getting the necessary certifications they know and trust. Here you find a short overview of some of the key organic certifications.

The organic logo gives a coherent visual identity to organic products in the European Union. This makes it easier for European consumers to identify organic products. The organic logo can only be used on products that have been certified as organic by an authorized control body of the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission).

The EU organic farming logo guarantees consumers that the farming of the product they buy tends to have a limited environmental impact as it encourages

  • Responsible use of energy and natural resources
  • Maintenance of biodiversity
  • Preservation of regional ecological balances
  • Enhancement of soil fertility
  • Maintenance of water quality

Additionally, organic farming rules encourage a high standard of animal welfare and require farmers to meet the specific behavioral needs of animals.

The National Organic Program (NOP)

USDA Organic Logo - Organic certification

The National Organic Program (NOP) is the federal regulatory framework in the United States of America governing organic food. The core mission of the NOP is to protect the integrity of the USDA organic seal. The NOP develops the rules & regulations for the production, handling, labeling and enforcement of all USDA organic products. The seal is used for products adhering to USDA standards that contain at least 95% organic ingredients.

CCPAE - Catalunia

The Catalan Council of Organic Production (CCPAE) are a supervisory authority of Catalonia and its function is to audit and certify organic food products in the territory. Our organic nut range is certified by CCPAE. This means that certified products are elaborated following the rules of organic agriculture, and that they have been controlled in all their process of production, elaboration, packaging and commercialization. Organic vegetable products are products grown without fertilizers or pesticides of chemical synthesis (fungicides, insecticides or herbicides). Therefore, without residues of these substances. If a product is CCPAE certified, it is standardly Euroleaf-certified as well.
