Bio Suisse is the main organic organization in Switzerland and the owner of the "Bourgeon" brand (Bud). This umbrella organization created in 1981 represents the interests of over 6'000 agricultural and horticultural companies carrying the "Bourgeon" brand, and more than 840 agri-food and commercial companies that have concluded a "Bourgeon" license agreement. The "Bourgeon" (Bud) is sustainable because it offers our contemporaries a good quality of life while preserving the resources for the future generations. By doing so, it balances the interests of human, animal and nature. And in order for this balance to be sustained, independent bodies each year control the entire value-added chain.
