Committed from the beginning to the implementation of vegan traceability from field to plate, Expertise Vegan Europe is the official partner of the Biocyclic Vegan Standard certification, an official organic standard approved by IFOAM ORGANICS. This unique and approved international standard embodies a sustainable agriculture that excludes phytosanitary products of animal origin, livestock or breeding, fertilisers from animal excrement and the remains of slaughterhouses (horns, blood, feathers, bones…). It is based on the permanent enrichment of the soil through the maintenance of its organic plant matter and the maintenance of a high level of biodiversity.
Any farm whose entire production is certified or certifiable as organic (according to the European regulation), whose entire activity is free of animal husbandry and voluntary use of inputs of animal origin can apply to be assessed and, if appropriate, obtain the right to obtain vegan farming certification. The steps are as follows:
Step 1 – Application and pre-assessment (free remote interview).
Step 2 – Quote
Step 3 – Contract
Step 4 – Documentary assessment
Step 5 – Audit of the operation
Step 6 – Report review / Certification
Step 7 – Monitoring
