Italian fruit company VOG is expanding its range with the addition of Naturland-certified products. The firm supplies products with the seal of the Bioland and Demeter organic farming associations and has also obtained the Bio Suisse certification.
Naturland is the largest international association for organic farming in Germany and its guidelines go far beyond EU regulations. They also include targets for social responsibility and other key aspects of sustainability.
VOG Products CEO Christoph Tappeiner said: “We have been supporting this dynamic development for many years and are pursuing the objective of further expanding our leading position in the organic sector.”
VOG processes around 300,000 tons of fruit from integrated and organic cultivation each year into apple juice and purees. The company exports about 90% of its production to around 50 countries worldwide.
