In Germany, VLOG is the Non-GMO Certification Standard that is backed by the German Government and trusted by the German consumer. Currently, it is not mandatory for products sold in Germany to carry the Ohne Gentechnik seal, but if your product has it, German consumers are more likely to purchase it.
While the VLOG Standard has been around some time, it is still relatively new to businesses outside of Germany. If you are a food manufacturer and you are, or you are planning to, export to Germany, VLOG certification should be on your list of certifications to consider.
Our course will walk you through the requirements of the standard, and equip you with the resources and tools to achieve VLOG Certification for your product.
