In order for a product to receive the organic bud, the entire production process must comply with the strict Bio Suisse guidelines. The conversion from conventional to organic farming takes a full two years. This is the time needed for the soil to rid itself of synthetic chemical pesticides.
Healthy soil is a prerequisite for healthy plants, healthy animals and consequently healthy food. It stores humus and nutrients, filters water and decomposes plant residues. That's why Bud farmers take special care of the soil: They work it gently and consciously care for it so that it is at least as fertile for future generations.
In fact, the soil on Swiss organic farms is so clean that you can eat the vegetables that grow in and on it right off the ground, unwashed. To illustrate this product advantage, plates made from organic soil were produced for the first time - the basis for every tasty organic dish.
For this purpose, the best organic soil was dug up from the vegetable field of the organic farm "Katzhof" near Lucerne and transported to the studio of ceramic artist Sabine Dambach.
The organic earth was dried, crushed, finely ground and finally shaped with water into the appropriate form. After a further drying phase, the plates were fired at 1235 degrees and then glazed with natural colors. At the very end, each plate received the coveted bud emblem.
The limited sets consist of three plates, which you can not buy, but only win. You can enter the competition on the Bio Suisse homepage. The promotion will run for another 10 days on online and social media channels.
