Demeter Production found the world over

Demeter licensees are to be found in all corners of the globe, using the Biodynamic method successfully on all continents, across the full gamut of climatic conditions. Whether bananas from the Dominican Republic, tea plantations in India, medicinal herbs in Egypt the production of meat and wool in New Zealand – everywhere Biodynamic production can be found adapted to local conditions.

But the International Standards must also be followed – a fact established annually by a thorough inspection and subsequent certification. The system must be working – the number of Demeter certified enterprises is increasing steadily.
