The IFS and BRC certifications were created to:

  • Provide healthy products to consumers

  • Meet the requirements of the Community legislation regarding hygiene.

AB et Eurofeuille

The Organic Farming (AB) and Organic Farming Europe certifications refer to all the products that are from French (for the AB certification) and European (for the Organic farming Europe label) organic agriculture. The label AB was the first to be created in 1985 and the European label dates back to 2009. Since the implementation of the latter, the conditions of the AB label had aligned themselves to the ones of the European in order to simplify the regulations and provide the best guidance to consumers.

The AB and EU certified organic food label guarantee that at least 95% of the product components are from organic farming that respect the EU regulation, that the production method is respectful of the environment, the biodiversity, and the animal welfare; they ensure the absence of synthetic chemicals, of GMO (adventitious traces of GMO are tolerated up to 0.9%) and they attest that the product comes directly from the producer-farmer in a sealed packaging.
