Demeter is an organic brand with strict requirements. Certification guarantees that the food is produced in accordance with the guidelines for biodynamic agriculture. Many of our Naturaplan products bear the Demeter quality label as well as the Bio Suisse bud.
Every Demeter product is the result of biodynamic agriculture and the careful processing of raw materials in accordance with the Demeter guidelines. This consistently strengthens the soil, plants, animals and people. Demeter added value:
Promotion of soil fertility thanks to own compost culture and biodynamic compounds
Locally adapted plant cultivation for greater vitality and species diversity
Animal welfare thanks to natural husbandry and species-appropriate feed
Very gentle processing for top-quality food
Adherence to specific social standards
Strict requirements for Demeter
The Swiss Demeter guidelines go far beyond the minimum legal requirements of the federal government and the EU for organic products. Compliance is monitored annually by the independent certification body Bio Inspecta.
A few examples:
No dehorning of cattle
No use of synthetic chemical agents or artificial fertilizers
No use of colourings or flavourings
Very gentle processing: for example, no homogenization of milk
