‘Euro-leaf’, the new European organic logo

The ‘Euro-leaf’ design is the new European Union’s organic logo created by a German student. The new EU organic logo will be obligatory on all pre-packaged organic products that have been produced in any of the EU member states and meet the necessary standards, Mediafax informs. The winning logo was the result of a pan-European contest open to art and design students. Nearly 3,500 logo submitted designs were examined by an internationally renowned jury, the EC announced by press release on Monday. The winning logo was designed by Dusan Milenkovic, a student from Germany, who gained 63 per cent of the overall vote for his design.


From July 1, 2010 the new EU organic logo will be obligatory on all pre-packaged organic products that have been produced in any of the EU member states and meet the necessary standards. It will be optional for imported products. Other private, regional or national logos will be allowed to appear alongside the EU label. The best three logos were uploaded on the competition website and subject to an online vote which ended on January 31, 2010. Their designers will receive prizes of EUR 6,000, EUR 3,000 and EUR 2,500 respectively.
