Organic Food update

IFST Information Statement on Organic Food

As part of our commitment to provide relevant and clear science-based information about food science and technology, we have updated our Information Statement on Organic Food.

It looks at current EU rules related to organic food, explores how it should be labelled and advises on where to begin if a food business seeks to move into organic food production.

IFST Information Statements are peer-reviewed by IFST’s Scientific Committee.
