European Organic Day

Showing the strength and excellence of European organic, every year on 23 September

What is EU Organic Day?  
The EU Organic Day – September 23 – is the ideal opportunity to widely celebrate the organic sector and to evaluate Europe’s progress towards achieving its goal of 25% organic land by 2030. 

Officially launched in 2021 by the European Parliament, the Commission, and the Council of the European Union, this day represents the occasion to, among others, assess trends in consumer demands, continue raising awareness of organic in the supply chain and finally, define new targets for the future of organic in Europe.  
Last year, following the official launch of the EU Organic Day, Janusz Wojciechowski, Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, conveyed his happiness about establishing this day and emphasized the collective effort necessary to reach the objectives of the Farm to Fork and Biodiversity strategies. He added that EU Organic Day, instated on 23 September and the autumn equinox, reminds us of the balance between night and day, and the balance needed when working with nature. 

As European organic movement, we want once and again to celebrate and raise awareness of organic and its benefits together with our members, like-minded and sector organisations. Last year, many of you joined us to celebrate in the organic spirit of Health, Ecology, Fairness and Care.

Who participated in 2022? 
We want to thank all those who took part in EU Organic Day by sharing their initiatives. Their actions have truly inspired us and the organic world, and we sincerely hope to see new, energizing actions next year!

Why EU organic Day?
The launch of the annual EU Organic Day follows up on the Action Plan for the development of organic production, adopted by the Commission on 25 March 2021, which announced the creation of such a day to raise awareness of the characteristics and benefits of organic production.

The Action Plan aims at stimulating organic production and consumer demand for organic products, for this reason, together with the EU Organic Awards, the EU Organic Day marks a moment of high purpose for organic in Europe.
