Bio Suisse wants as few residues in organic products as possible.

The organic producers and processors do their utmost to reduce them. In a conventional environment, however, not all residues can be avoided, therefore there is no zero tolerance. Any residue in organic products is assessed individually and improvement measures are taken.
