Organic News: March 2023

Organico Realfoods is the first UK company to be verified by Planet-score®

Organico Realfoods is proud to announce that all Organico products have gone through the rigorous Planet-score® assessment process for environmental impact. Organico products have all achieved a triple A score, the highest possible. Organico is the first company and brand in the UK to go through the scoring assessment process, although the system is already widely used in France and is being advanced in a number of other European countries.

What is Planet-score® rating system?

The issue of greenwashing is increasingly becoming a problem as consumers struggle to make sense of competing claims. Planet-score® is an independent and transparent methodology for the environmental labelling of food.

Planet-score® is an environmental rating system based on ADEME’s Agribalyse database and other complementary key elements, such as biodiversity, pesticides, IPCC updates of climatic elements, etc. It integrates the environmental impact from farm to fork (ingredients, their origin, cultivation or rearing methods, packaging, and transport).

The Planet-score® is a label designed to be displayed on food products, on packaging as well as on e-commerce websites or mobile applications.
