HIGH INTEGRITY THROUGHOUT PROCESSING
ALL INGREDIENTS FROM CERTIFIED ORGANIC SOURCES
As a matter of principle, all the agricultural raw materials used in the production of Bud-labelled products must be from certified organic farming. Exemptions from this principle are possible, but very precisely defined.
Bud-labelled products may only be processed by non-aggressive mechanical and/or physical fermentation procedures. Unnecessary processing steps are not allowed. Chemical processing, radiation and microwave treatment are forbidden.
MINIMAL USE OF ADDITIVES AND PROCESSING AIDS
Additives and processing aids are not used, unless the use of such substances is technologically indispensable.
The ingredients have to be of natural provenance, produced without genetic engineering. Approval by Bio Suisse is handled specifically for each product.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PACKAGING MATERIAL
As far as possible, environmentally friendly material must be used for packaging. PVC and other chlorinated plastics are prohibited as a matter of principle.
