Organic farming aims at minimising external inputs, preserving the natural fertility of the soil and making the most of natural mechanisms and balances.

The certification process is divided into five main phases: (i) Notification of an organic production to the authority (ii) Initial assessment of the production process (iii) Start-up inspection to verify the correct application and effectiveness of declared management plan (iv) Issuance of Documentary Evidence and Certificate of Conformity (v) Annual surveillance through periodic inspections and planned analyses.
