Comments on type of standards owner

Luomuliitto owns the Ladybird logo and has own private standards which are stricter than the EC 834/2007. They recommend that 100 % of the animal feed is of Finnish origin and require that at least 75 % of the ingredients of the labeled products are of Finnish origin. The logo may be granted to farmers, food processors and farm input manufacturers obeying the Luomuliitto standards. The logo is mainly used on vegetables.
