The period for public consultation to choose the logo for organic products in the whole of Brazil ended on March 19, 2009. The winning seal will come into force thirteen months after publication in the federal government’s Official Gazette.

During this period,  producers will be able to obtain the necessary registration at the Ministry of Agriculture and Food  Supply. It is expected that the consumer will find products with the single organic seal at supermarkets  as early as the first semester of 2010.
