When selling your organic products in markets outside Europe, an official international label may be mandatory or necessary to be recognized by local consumers.
It may also help your business by reducing certain administrative burdens. The range of requirements is as extensive as the number of countries you are exporting to! Before exporting your products, you should therefore ask your importer about the requirements of the importing country. These vary from country to country and change over time. You can also find country-specific export information at OrganicExport.info
