The Bundesverband Naturkost Naturwaren (BNN) e.V., in collaboration with its member companies, operates in many different fields of activity.
The internal quality work develops recommendations and guidelines, such as the BNN Flavour Recommendation in reference to the use of aromatics in the processing of organic foods or the Assortment Guidelines for retailers. The BNN monitoring of fruit and vegetables in the organic food trade as well as shelf-stable products supplement the in-house quality assurance procedures of the participating companies.
Furthermore BNN is active in the field of education and training, collects sectoral market data amongst its members and offers the BNN-Sustainability Monitor, a tool allowing participating companies a reliable and comparable measurement of their sustainability efforts.
In addition to other projects which the association is currently carrying out or has already implemented, BNN communicates on these and other themes to its members and the interested public.
