Almost 10 per cent of all foods sold in Denmark are organically cultivated, which is a world record.

The Danish consumers are the most pro-organic consumers in the world. In fact Denmark has the world’s highest organic share and the most well-developed organic market.
Denmark was the first country in the world to introduce an organic logo that guarantees control by national authorities.

The Danish organic logo is also given to cafees and restaurants that serve organic meals. One of the strongest selling points for eating organic foods had been to reduce our exposure to pesticides and insecticides. Besides in some agriculture areas, pollution of groundwater courses with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides can be a major problem.

Organic farming also helps preserve more natural habitat areas and encourages a more healthy biodiversity.
