Summary

In recent years, the organic sector has put significant efforts in the development of clear definitions for gentle and quality oriented processing of plant based foodstuffs to supplement existing regulations. Concrete quality standards for different types of processing are under development in several CoreOrganic Plus projects. However, there is still a significant need for development of a Code of Practice. Quality of a product and sustainability of production depend on the cumulative impacts of each processing step in the food chain, as well as the quality of the raw material. With increasing demands by the consumers who expect high quality foods produced sustainably and preferably regionally (SusOrganic consumer survey), pressure on the producers is growing as this requires skilled and qualified agri-food practitioners, professionals and manufacturers to be able to deliver the best quality at affordable prices and the lowest environmental impact possible.
