- About Schoppe
There are a number of quality seals on the food market with the green leaf being the most familiar – the EU organic seal. At Schoppe, we also offer products with the European organic seal for your private label beverages. In this article, we explain which criteria need to be fulfilled. You will also discover which certificates you can combine and why the EU organic seal may be beneficial to you.
The organic seal of the EU certifies compliance with minimum environmental standards in food production. Compliance is checked by eco-inspection bodies and farming associations, who regularly analyse product samples. Production sites and associated processes are also audited regularly. The benchmark of the EU organic seal is that the product needs to meet the criteria for organic food defined in the EC-Eco-regulation. This organic quality seal is also consistent in its requirements at a broader EU level.
The following points must be met to obtain a valid EU organic certificate for organic cocoa, organic toppings, organic cappuccino or organic tea:
At Schoppe Instant Beverages, you can have your private label instant beverage produced using organic ingredients, and therefore distinguish your instant beverage with the EU organic seal. Whether you need instant beverages for use in hot drink vending machines, for capsules or a product for manual preparation, Schoppe can help you with:
Many consumers set great store by compliance with environmental standards for foods and their decision to buy is based on a product being labelled with eco-seals. The organic seal of the EU is generally recognised – and well known. It therefore usually needs no further explanation, allowing consumers to make their choice without needing to take in a lot of information. Receiving this seal can therefore promote sales.
Another advantage is that the standard is consistent across the EU, enabling a vast market to be reached with the EU organic seal.
Customers who consciously choose ecologically produced food, usually also consider sustainable and fair production conditions important. For this reason, it is often a good idea to use raw materials and ingredients that are certified with the Fairtrade seal or the Rainforest Alliance seal (formerly the UTZ seal) in addition to the EU organic seal. These food seals hold great value in terms of sustainable farming and fair trade, particularly for organic coffee, organic cocoa and organic tea.
