Comment on the use of the organic standard and additional subjects covered

The standards are owned by USOFA, a union of 8 regional Slovenian organic farmers associations, which was founded in 1999. It is the largerst Slovenian organic producers organisation. The individual members of regional associations are farmers, who are farming according to the USOFA Standards on the whole farm (complete conversion). Organic processors who fulfill the Standards of the organisation may become USOFA licence partners. USOFA Standards for Production and Processing are based on international IFOAM Basic Standards. They meet the national and European Union requirements for organic production, but are in several issues more demanding than these.
