Animal Production & Aquaculture Products
Organic products are controlled and certified under the E.E. 2018/848 Regulation, which includes and certifies the rearing of domestic productive animals in accordance with responsible animal treatment practices and their well-being, as well as feeding them organic food according to their nutritional requirements. Certification is available for the following species of animals and their products:
In addition to the possibility of joining the Control and Certification program for organic products, aquaculture businesses are also of interest. These businesses raise sea bream, sea bass, trout, mussels and algae. In the organic aquaculture sector, rules include the minimization of handling for the sake of avoiding stress and injury. Further to this, they include the use of organic fish feed and the setting of upper limits on fish stocks.
