About On the way to PlanetProof


Certification scheme Plant Products


Independent quality label for more sustainable food products and services

On the way to PlanetProof is a European sustainability label that proves more sustainable agricultural production. The label is available for arable crops, fruits and vegetables, milk, eggs, ornamentals (flowers, plants, trees, flower bulbs, etc.), and prepared and processed food products.  

Products with this quality label comply with strict environmental criteria related to 8 sustainability themes. Therefore, choosing certified products is good for the planet because the farmers and growers produce with respect for nature, climate, and the animals. The criteria and measures go beyond legal requirements.  

SMK is an independent non-profit organisation that develops and manages the sustainability label.
