The Swiss can now order products online in their region from Bio-Suisse farms nationwide. Since last weekend, the umbrella organisation of Swiss bud farms has given its customers the opportunity to purchase directly from local producers and growers.
The first Yardo “super Biomarkt” (organic supermarket) in Switzerland opened its doors in the centre of St. Gallen on Thursday 26 January 2006.

Observers of the market are agreed that the Italian organic market is currently undergoing consolidation, although at the same time positive tendencies are also apparent.
“We would never have believed that we would set such an avalanche rolling,” Basic-founder George Schweisfurth says in amazement today.

Norway’s new centre-left government has high expectations of organic farming.
There are no precise data on the number of organic and whole food shops in Sweden.
