Products from Organic Farming
Organic? Of course!
1.8 million farmers in 162 countries are cultivating more than 37 million hectares of agricultural land organically (souce: FiBL, 12.02.2013). The demand for organically cultivated foodstuffs increases every year.
Advantages of organic farming are obvious: since no chemical or synthetic fertilizers are applied, emissions adverse to climate are reduced and our environment is protected. Synthetic plant protection agents are not applied, therefore healthy and uncontaminated food can be consumed. No growth promoters or antibiotics are administered to animals in organic farming.

Organic Philosophy Starts in the Field – Why do we Need Analysis?
The European organic legislation regulates systematic and complete process control along the food chain. Laboratory results are an important basis for strategies and decisions, for example for cause studies or even callbacks. With our analytical service GALAB pesticides 500Plus® BNN and further analyses relevant for product or process, you receive the safety which is essential for a high-quality organic product. We are accredited as monitoring laboratory by the German BNN for all product groups: fruit and vegetables, cereals, oilseeds, tea and spices.
Sometimes contaminations may occur post-harvest, during storage, transport or processing. Our numerous analytical services ensure safety of your process control.

We Are There For You – Far Beyond Analytics!
Your queries regarding analytical results are handled by our customer support and clarified directly with you. But we do not leave you out in the rain, if you have any questions or problems beyond analytical results: With our service Consulting Organic Foods we offer support and advice for any questions or problems about organic farming, trading and production. We support you in implementing all product requirements, starting from cultivation until the final, ready-packed product.
