European Union Organic Certification DEBIO
North Sea Salt Works believe strongly in organic foods and sustainable production practices. Therefore our salt production follows all guidelines for us to create an organic product in a sustainable manner, but for the time being European Union* (EU) regulations for organic products certification does not include salt as one of the product groups EU can certify as organic under their DEBIO program. However, we are excited that this will change. As of January 2021 Havsnø and our other sea salts can be certified organic. You can read more about it here.
If you see a European product on the spice shelf in your grocery store with the DEBIO logo it is a herbal salt where the herbs are certified as organic not the salt.
*Norway is not a member of the EU, but tied in to the legislations though the European Economic Area (EEA) agreement.
