Every company applying for an organic, or “Bio”, certification has to undergo a series of inspections of the whole production process. Organic food must not be treated with any artificial flavorings, coloring or sweeteners, and must not contain any genetically modified organisms (GMO).
The cultivation, the processing and the distribution of organic products, as well as their importation, is regulated by European laws defining production norms, control systems, labeling standards and procedures for importing them from non-EU countries.
The Vegan certification attests that the product is made without using food, ingredients, or processing aids of animal origin. It also certifies that none of the technological devices, filters, membranes and other processing aids used in the whole production cycle are of animal origin.
FDA certification is one of the authorizations needed to sell foodstuffs in the United States of America. The FDA safeguards the public’s health by strictly monitoring all the products which enter the USA, to make sure that they respect the laws and regulations and meet specific requirements.
