European Commission launches competition to create a new EU organic logo
Organic food meets fresh design: The European Commission's Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development is inviting all design and art students from the 27 EU Member States to enter the EU-wide organic logo competition. The competition offers a prize that money just can’t buy: The winning logo will be introduced as the official logo for organic products throughout the European Union in July 2010. On the eve of the organic logo competition launch, Mariann Fischer Boel, European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, said: "The new organic logo will bring identity to the organic sector in the EU. It will help in creating the single market, and that's good news for producers and consumers."
