Bridge-Building. Accountability. Sustainability

The Bio-Foundation Switzerland is a non-profit organization for the promotion of environmentally-friendly products and alternative patterns of consumer behaviour. The fundament of the foundation’s work is the conviction that the basis for all sustainable development is innovation and the independent, responsible actions of each individual involved. Based on these principles and with the provision of highly professional inspection and certification services for organic and environmental sound products, the Bio-Foundation has built up a worldwide network, bridging smallholder farmers in emerging economies with highly developed markets. In this context “bridging” is understood as a mutual exchange process and not only in one direction!

The organic foods sector has changed dramatically over the last few years. Today the pressure to make profit is ever-present. Worldwide trade with organic products is a reality. This offers innovative producers great opportunities. At the same time, this global flow of goods is a challenge to the social structures and the holistic principles of organic farming. Only through independent, responsible actions and the continued development of alternative approaches will it be possible to solve urgent problems by protecting the environment and nature, by guaranteeing fair, living wages and by strengthening regional economic cycles.
