About us

Organic Services...

... is an international consultancy firm based in Germany. Our services enhance sustainability, integrity, and business success throughout the food industry.

What we do

Since our foundation in 2004, we have specialized in providing software-based solutions which enable organic producers, processors, traders and certification bodies to manage traceability, quality, audit and certification processes along their supply chains. With these tools at hand and vast expertise and experience in the organic sector, we are regularly involved in national and international projects, advising entities such as GIZ, FAO, NOP and public authorities. Following an interdisciplinary approach, we also offer strategic and organizational business development, market research, trade support, project and event management. We draw on a global network of like-minded business partners on all continents and are known for our ability to focus on their specific needs whilst keeping an eye on the big picture at the same time.

What we believe in

We at Organic Services share the vision that, if managed and monitored conscientiously and efficiently at the same time, the organic sector cannot only supply healthy, nutritious food for everyone, but enable all supply chain parties to make an honest living on which they can build a sustainable future. In this way, organic production and trading practices can serve as a blueprint for any industry that is willing to change towards more transparency, fairness, and sustainability.

What sets us apart

Although we are rooted in the organic sector, we don’t shy away from stepping out of our comfort zone. We are passionate realists who prefer pragmatic solutions over idealistic pipe dreams. Curious, creative and open minded, we are keen to think outside the box, to question the obvious, to analyze and re-analyze a problem from different angles and thinking things through to the end. By always thinking one step ahead, we can help you to develop ideas and break new ground.
