Demeter is the certification for biodynamic agriculture and the resulting products. The Demeter Certification Guidelines go beyond EU organic certification. One could say that Demeter continues where EU organic stops. They demand, in addition to the abandonment of synthetic fertilizers and chemical pesticides or artificial additives in the processing, a targeted promotion of life processes in the soil and in the food. Also, the requirements for animal welfare, the cycle of animal manure and the feed are more stringent.
