Naturland farmers and processors comply with the Naturland standards to produce top grade foodstuffs. The production and processing of everything produced to the Naturland standards preserves the environment and provides job security.In 2011, there were 2,517 Naturland farms in Germany, cultivating an area of more than 130.000 acres. Naturland is an advocate of organic agriculture all over the world. On an international level, there were over 50,000 Naturland farmers cultivating a total area of over 142,000 hectares. Naturland farmers and processors work to the highest organic standards, which are more stringent than the statutory requirements of the EU eco regulation. The Naturland standards cover areas which are not governed by the EU eco regulation, such as social standards. In the mid 90‘s Naturland began drafting standards for organic aquaculture. Aqua farms in over twenty countries now produce according to these standards.
