Organic certification

Posted by Tobias Schwenn on Wednesday, January 27, 2010, In : General Updates 
Due to a public interest about the certification of my products to be organic, I found out that legaly I'm not allowed to call my bread organic until I'm certified with an officially recognized organasation.
