ORGAINVENT was founded on 21 November 1997.
Business partner: QS Qualität und Sicherheit GmbH, Bonn.
Managing director: Peter Jürgens
The purpose of our business is “the development and coordination of labelling, assurance and goods management systems between the agricultural industry and the food trade”. These systems can, furthermore, also be applied to the interface between agriculture and the energy industry.
ORGAINVENT sees itself as a “round table” between agriculture, the food retail or energy industries, and the national authorities.
Over the past 20 years, ORGAINVENT has developed various systems for the identification and traceability of food products, with the first of the systems for labelling and traceability to be approved by the BLE (German Federal Office for Agriculture and Food) having already been developed by 1998. This was supplemented with systems for the labelling and traceability of pig meat and poultry meat (1999, 2000), which were used on a voluntary basis.
The first labelling system for eggs was also planned and implemented by ORGAINVENT in 2000. This system was replaced by statutory regulations in 2004.
