Naturland is one of the largest associations for ecological farming in Germany. Naturland operators have to respect stricter standards with respect to those established by the European regulations. Naturland standards include also social accountability requirements.
Naturland logo, differently than Bio-Siegel is required within most restrictive and selective markets.
ICEA, together with another Italian certification body, was recognized by Naturland to carry out inspections needed to release the certification and the related logo, that must be requested directly to the German office of the association (www.naturland.de). The operators that already have ICEA IFOAM Accredited certification meet most of Naturland requirements and can have a facilitate access to this certification.
To obtain the certification, to operator must contact Naturland directly to start the process, that will then take care to give mandate to ICEA to carry out the inspection.
The standards of referral and additional info can be found on www.naturland.de
