Naturland is one of the major international associations for organic agriculture and promotes organic farming worldwide. Currently more than 70,000 farmers, bee-keepers, fish farmers and fishers in 57 countries manage some 480,000 hectares according to the Naturland standards. Naturland certification standards do not only cover plant and animal production. They also include bee-keeping, aquaculture, sustainable capture fishery, food processing as well as non-food areas like forest management, cosmetics and textiles. Standards on Social Responsibility are an integral part of the Naturland certification. With its supplementary certification Naturland Fair, Naturland combines organic and fair trade under one logo which is applied to products from both the north and the south.
