MEPs backed the new EU law on organic production and labelling, with 466 votes in favour and 124 votes against, with 50 abstentions.
Martin Häusling, rapporteur for the European Parliament's Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development, helped steer the legislation through Parliament.
Speaking during a press conference in Brussels, Häusling stressed the importance of having “clear rules” and a harmonised European approach.
“The most important point is we are giving certainty to producers and more clarity to the sector and we have a more harmonised approach across the European Union,” the German representative for the Greens told reporters.
The European Commission issued a proposal on organic regulations five years ago. However, Häusling said that the deal hammered out by MEPs goes further than these initial proposals in an attempt to meet consumer expectations on organic production standards. “We have achieved a substantial improvement to give greater certainty to consumers,” he noted.

I wanted to take a moment to express how happy my company and I am with Kelci’s and the services of CPA. Earlier this year I was very frustrated. I had engaged my regular recruiter in seeking an engineer with a background in agriculture. (Not an easy task.) After 3 months he had not been successful. I found Kelci on LinkedIn and contacted her. The first thing she insisted on was coming here and seeing my plant. (She was the first recruiter I have worked with who did this.) She wanted to know what the working environment was like here. From there she began her search and within 6 weeks I had my engineer with a background in agriculture. I then turned to her this fall to assist in finding me a maintenance supervisor. She provided me with a number of outstanding candidates and we have just been notified that our number one candidate has accepted our offer.
Kelci is now my “go to recruiter.”
