Yesterday I read in Loredana‘s and Richard‘s blogs about the natural and organic logo will be seen on product packaging in the EU. I think not, skim and find that in fact the competition is postponed due to incompatibility with some German trade mark.
Today found that it’s official: The European Commission today officially announced the winner of the EU organic logo competition.
Over the past two months, some 130,000 people have voted online to choose the new organic symbol from three finalists. The winning design is by Dusan Milenkovic, a student from Germany, who gained 63% of the overall vote for his “Euro-leaf” logo (however, doesnt Deutsch from Germany).
From 1st July 2010, the organic logo of the EU 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. The “Euro-leaf” design shows the EU stars in the shape of a leaf against a green background. It is a very straightforward sign containing two clear messages: Nature and Europe.
The winner and the winners of the second and third prize will be honoured by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development at an official award ceremony that will take place in Brussels in July 2010.
