New Organic Logo

10 February 2010

EU - A new logo for organic EU pre-packaged organic products has been chosen by the public and will be used from 1 July 2010.


"I'm delighted that we now have a fresh EU organic food logo," said Mariann Fischer Boel, Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, who first proposed the competition to select the logo. "This exercise has raised the profile of organic food and we now have a logo which everyone will be able to identify with. It's a nice elegant design and I look forward to buying products carrying this logo from July this year."

The winning logo was the result of a pan-European contest open to art and design students. The nearly 3,500 logo designs submitted were examined by an internationally renowned jury. The best three logos were uploaded on the competition website www.ec.europa.eu/organic-logo and subject to an online vote which ended on 31 January 2010.

The winning design is by Dusan Milenkovic, a student from Germany, who gained 63 per cent of the overall vote for his “Euro-leaf” logo.
