Bio Suisse is a private organization of Swiss organic producers whose seal represents:
Bio Suisse is the owner of the trademark Bud (“sprout”). Its standards are private law guidelines and exceed the minimum organic legal requirements in essential respects (Organic Regulation EU 834/2007 or equivalent). Overseas producers who meet the required standards and who wish to supply their products to Switzerland can obtain Bio Suisse certification.
A valid organic certification equivalent to the Swiss Ordinance on Organic Agriculture (eg Council Regulation (EC) No 834/2007 or Council NOP) is the basis for certification to Bio Suisse standards abroad. In general, a buyer / importer of the products in Switzerland should be named. It will bear all the costs of Bio Suisse certification.
International Certification Bio Suisse AG (ICB), a subsidiary of Bio Suisse, carries out the certification. Detailed information is available at: www.icbag.ch.
