Organic farming is a type of agriculture that considers the entire agricultural ecosystem, exploits the natural fertility of the soil, promoting it with limited interventions, promotes the biodiversity of the environment in which it operates and limits or excludes the use of synthetic products and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Organic agriculture in Europe was regulated for the first time at Community level in 1991 with Reg. (EEC) No. 2092/91. This Regulation has been replaced by the EC Reg. 834/2007, which entered into force on 1 January 2009. The new regulation has made it possible to make the control system more rational and to simplify the organic rules, constituting a relaunch platform for this sector. Another important step was the new graphic brand to be inserted on the label.
The organic certification according to EC Reg. 834/2007 can only be issued by Certification Bodies recognized by the EU. In our case we use Bioagricert, one of the main Italian control bodies, for the control and certification of our organic extra virgin olive oil.
