Look out for the new EU Organic Foods Logo

The 'Euro leaf'

The new European Union organic logo has just been published in the EU’s Official Journal.

The design by Dušan Milenković – dubbed the ‘Euro Leaf ‘ – was chosen in a competition open to design students across the EU.

From July 2010 the EU organic logo will be obligatory for all organic pre-packaged food products within the EU. It will also be possible to use the logo on a voluntary basis for non pre-packaged organic goods produced within the EU or any organic products imported from third countries.

As well as the logo, food products will bear the code number of the certifying body in a standardised format and an indication of the place of farming of the agricultural raw materials which the product contains.

The use of national or private organic logos alongside the EU logo will also be allowed.
