Summary

Selling produce in loose weight in shops and supermarkets can be done from a KRAV labelled box if the packaging or refilling date is clearly stated. Signs with the KRAV mark shall be placed close to the product panel (KRAV standards paragraph 2.13.14 and 2.3.15).

Difference

Sales of organic products in shops and supermarkets are not regulated by EU 2092/91.

Justification

Many organic products are sold in loose weight and it is important that organic products can compete on equal conditions. There is a wish by consumers to reduce the amount of packaging material. It is not possible to request all shops and supermarkets to be certified for handling of organic products.
