Catering Glossary

organic foods

"Organic" is legally defined term which describes produce from organic origins. For a product of industrial manufacture or catering operations to be described as organic, only organic ingredients may be used and additives and flavor enhancers are excluded. Addition of aroma is permitted only if of natural origin. The application of the term "organic" requires organic certification of the operations or trader. 

In Germany, organic labeling must name the control organization responsible and often includes the organic seal and the German abbreviation kbA.
