The winners of the EU Organic Day 2022

publié le 28 September 2022

Since 2021, the European Commission, together with the Parliament and the Council, has organised the European Organic Day. This year, for the first time, 8 European Organic Awards were presented. These prizes are designed to stimulate and highlight farmers, SMEs, regions and cities involved in organic production or consumption and which have exemplary, sustainable and innovative projects.

For this new edition, the European Commission has awarded 8 different prizes:

In total, no less than 200 applications from 26 Member States were received. The jury selected projects of excellence by respecting criteria of innovation, sustainability and replicability.

These awards are part of the action plan for organic production in the EU, which aims for at least 25% of agricultural land to be devoted to organic farming and for aquaculture to increase sustainably by 2030. This would allow for a reduction in chemical fertilisers, pesticides and antimicrobials, which would have positive effects on the climate, the environment, the soil, the air and the ground, as well as on animal welfare. It will also contribute to the achievements of the European Green Deal, the Fork to Table strategy and the Biodiversity strategy.
