In order to produce excellent, high-quality organic juices, we place great value on research, development and quality assurance. The focus here is not merely on developing new products, but also on continually improving existing juice varieties. To ensure our customers are consistently offered only the very best quality, we have created a department responsible for the development and quality of Biotta juices. As soon as the first results for a new juice recipe become available, the team start tasting, talking juice and forming a verdict. In this manner, we can be sure that a wide range of opinions are taken into account and inform the process.
During the juice production, there’s also plenty to be done. Each production batch is carefully monitored and regularly checked during the entire production process. This enables us to pinpoint and rectify any quality flaws early on.
Operations and quality assurance are also constantly monitored by external inspectors.

As organic farming grew increasingly popular, new legislation was drawn up in 1991 to support the new trend for organic produce. Since 1992, the EU-ECO Regulation has regulated (EC 834/2007) organic farming. This legislation, which is legally binding for all countries in the European Union, determines the minimum parameters for growing and monitoring organic products.
