The Mission Statement


Austria Bio Garantie is not controlled by outside influences. Based on our impartiality, we provide our services neutrally to all applicants, independent of all commercial or political influences.

Our market position is strengthened by a broad range of services and financial autonomy.


Austria Bio Garantie conducts independent inspections at all levels of the production chain (farmers-processors-traders-import/export) and Austria Bio Garantie makes in the complete inspection chain of organic products sure, that a product is “organic”, when it tells you to be organic. Our inspection makes the difference between “certified organic products” and “pseudo organic products” (conventional products) in terms of declaration and traceability.


By our business and services, ABG contributes a lot to a sustainable cultivation of land ressources, to maintenance of cultural landscape and to a species-appropriate animal husbandry.


Activities of the Austria Bio Garantie support and push forward production methods – which enhance the chance of organic farmers and processors to be successful on the national and international market.


Quality is a main concern in every respect of Austria Bio Garantie. The high quality demands cover continuous training and further education of our staff, as well as inspections, and customer services.
