Bio Suisse endeavours to ensure residues in organic products are kept to a minimum. Organic product producers and processors do their best to avoid residues. However, in a non-organic environment, it is impossible to avoid all residues. It is therefore not possible to implement a zero-tolerance policy.

Any residues found in organic products shall be assessed on a case-by-case basis and improvement measures shall be implemented. On this page, you will find the Bio Suisse principles regarding residues in organic products, on which we have based marketing decisions regarding organic products with residues and which will guide you in assessing the risks of residues and in how residues can be avoided.

Further information on the evaluation and avoidance of residues can be found in part on the English version and in full on the German and French versions of the website.
