European Organic Day
Showing the strength and excellence of European organic, every year on 23 September
What is EU Organic Day?
23 September, EU Organic Day, 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.
As European organic movement, we celebrate this day and use it to raise awareness of organic and its benefits. For two years, many of our members joined us celebrating organic online and also organised their own events celebrating in the spirit of organic’s principles of Health, Ecology, Fairness and Care.
This year, we will again inspire our members and the movement and collect and showcase European organic initiatives! Are you organising something on / around EU Organic Day? Share what you’re organising with us and we will showcase it.
Do note that we will prioritise our members’ (and their members’) activities due to the high number of submissions. If you have any questions in the meantime, please do reach out to [email protected].
Get inspired! Who’s participating in 2023?
These organisations, initiatives and events will be giving a face and more visibility to the organic movement and sector in September!
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.
