The Danish authorities published the first organic legislation in 1987 and launched a logo as a national organic control logo in 1989.

The logo is “famous” in Denmark as it is known by 98% of all Danish consumers. 90% are confident that the products carrying this logo actually are organic.

Although these figures are almost self-explanatory, they also tell the story of a long-term involvement and serious collaboration between the sector and the authorities. The organic products that are sold in Denmark are today often labelled with both the Danish state-controlled logo and the EU logo.
