Biokreis e.V. – Association for organic farming and healthy nutrition

In the Biokreis, 1200 farmers, 150 processors and 200 consumers work together creatively and consistently on organic farming.

Founded in 1979 and headquartered in Passau, Biokreis is now active throughout Germany. Animal welfare, a resource-saving recycling economy, regional cooperation and added value, artisanal food processing – that is what the association stands for.

The guidelines are far above the standards of the EU Organic Regulation and are binding for all members. Within this framework, farmers have the freedom that their profession has always claimed; the Biokreis does not charge marketing fees. It supports its members with personal advice.

Just as the founders of the association were pioneers in 1979, new ideas are fundamental to the work of Biokreis today. For example, the association has created the guidelines for hotel/gastronomy, forest and animal food as well as the “regional and fair” seal and is a pioneer with the “100% organic leather” project.
