Trading with Demeter goods

We care about quality in our supply chains

Demeter® is a strong trademark in German speaking countries in central Europe. There is an increasing demand for both fresh and semi-finished Demeter products like coffee, sugar, tea and cacao. Encouragingly, the market for Demeter products is also developing in many other countries. Find statistics here.

Demeter contracts along the supply chain

The Demeter market is well structured by reliable supply chains. From both the producer and client’s side, long-term partnerships help to provide a consistent supply of goods for conscious consumers.
To guarantee the integrity of the Demeter® trademark and to ensure the traceability of supply chains, all producers, traders and processors need a valid Demeter contract to use the protected trademark legally.

Trading Demeter Goods

All final product labels of Demeter processed goods provide the necessary information for identification by consumers. Trading Demeter products does not require a license contract, however, advertising and marketing with the Demeter® trademark, does require a contract with the respective Demeter organisation.
All traders have to respect the different national distribution strategies in the relevant regions they are trading. Please find the relevant documents below with more information about our national distribution strategies.
