Demeter Egypt; also known as EBDA established a guideline committee to issue the “Egyptian Biodynamic Guidelines”. These guidelines are focusing on the private labelling scheme Demeter, but they are principally based on the Demeter International guidelines, the EU and IFOAM regulations. EBDA already released the Egyptian guidelines for biodynamic agriculture, Egyptian guidelines for processing of Organic products, and Egyptian guidelines of production and processing of Organic cotton.
The Demeter association, IMO Switzerland, and EBDA jointly established the Centre of Organic Agriculture in Egypt (COAE) as an independent inspection and certification body. COAE ensures and guarantees that the DEMETER International and European regulations for Organic production are fulfilled.
