To get a “bio” status, it is not enough for manufacturers to follow the “naturalness” and not get carried away with fertilizers, GMOs and all kinds of additives.

The production and processing processes are controlled by independent certification organizations at all stages, only they can assign the product the brand name “organic” or, which is more common in Europe, “bio”.
