Since September 2001, all agricultural products and foodstuffs from organic farming may be labelled with the national Bio-Siegel (eco label) of Germany. The small hexagonal logo with the inscription "Bio" brings about clarity, uniformity and orientation for organic or eco products respectively. Consumers can rely on it: "If it says 'Bio' on the outside it contains organic products."
