Bio Suisse - Guidelines for the production, processing and trading of 'Bud' products, Part V: Guidelines for companies abroad and imported products:
The core task of Bio Suisse as the umbrella organization for Swiss 'Bud' farms is to promote domestic 'Bud' producers and products. Imports serve to supplement the domestic supply. In addition, Bio Suisse supports sustainable production conditions abroad and helps to further develop organic farming worldwide.
Bio Suisse restricts the Bud labeling of foreign products. The import restrictions are regulated in detail in the Bio Suisse directives on import restrictions.
