DEMETER is the brand that identifies biodynamic products worldwide.
The biodynamic farming method was developed from anthroposophy, idealized by Rudolf Steiner, in 1924, integrating the human being, animals, plants, environment for food production.
DEMETER products are part of an international ecological network linked to DEMETER International, based in Switzerland.
DEMETER products produced in Brazil under the audit certification system are certified by IBD Certifications exclusively.
For those who want participatory certification should contact the site:
Biodynamic agriculture created the concept of ‘integrated farm as an individualized organism’ as early as 1924, a production process in which the farm becomes a reflection of the production environment as a consequence of the administrative decisions made by the responsible producer. To compensate for the degradation of the environment and loss of food vitality already expected to occur at that time, various ‘biodynamic preparations’ are used, consisting of herbs (millet, chamomile, nettle, dandelion, oak bark and valerian), cattle manure and silica for soil and plant applications. The certification of biodynamic products uses the DEMETER seal, the name of the goddess of agriculture in Greek mythology. This stamp has been in use since the 1950s; it is therefore a seal that represents something original, authentic from its origin and high quality. It is a seal that achieves high value, represents high quality products.
