EU competition to create organic logo
The European Commission's Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development has launched an EU-wide competition for designing a logo to be carried on all organic products. It has invited design and art students from the 27 EU Member States to send in their entries by June 25th. The winning entry will be carried on all organic products in the EU from July 2010. "The new organic logo will bring identity to the organic sector in the EU,” says the European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Mariann Fischer Boel.
