Welcome to Naturland

Naturland farmers and processors have been ground-breaking global pioneers for over 30 years. The world’s first ever conversion to organic agriculture of tea gardens in Sri Lanka and India in the 1980s was the prelude to our successful work on an international scale. Currently 65,000 farmers in 58 countries manage an area of some 440,000 hectares according to the Naturland standards. To Naturland, organic agriculture means combining tradition with modern practices and experience with the courage to adopt new approaches.

Strengthening the competitiveness of European organic fruit producers

BiofruitNet HD 250

With the kick-off meeting held from 16th to 17th December 2019 in Hamburg, the project BIOFRUITNET has officially been  launched. Focusing on organic pome, stone and citrus fruits, this projects aims to strengthen the competitiveness of European organic fruit production.

Although the European Union is the world leader in organic fruit production, organic fruit imports into the EU are increasing. This happens because certain varieties cannot be grown, are seasonally unavailable or cannot meet EU demand. European organic fruit producers must rise to this challenge if they intend to remain successful in an increasingly competitive market. Therefore, the sector needs a strong network for organic fruit production that fills this gap and makes local solutions available to other fruit producers.
