Summary

Accurate labelling is a very important part of the organic food concept. Therefore, the aspect of how to develop labelling concepts further down the line is important. Creative labelling solutions must be developed to enable consumers to understand the communication and to avoid additional labelling that leads to misunderstandings. Perhaps new types of labelling systems that guarantee that the product is, for example 'carefully processed' or 'hand-crafted' could also be considered.
