Dernière mise à jour le :27/01/2021


Organic farming is a method of agricultural production that excludes the use of synthetic substances, such as pesticides, synthetic medicines or fertilisers, and genetically modified organisms.

May be labelled as organic agricultural products, whether processed or unprocessed, which meet the requirements of the European Union regulations on organic production and labelling of organic products or, where applicable, the conditions defined by the specifications approved by order of the minister concerned on the proposal of the National Institute of Origin and Quality (article L641-13 of the rural code).
