Biokreis e.V. - Verband für ökologischen Landbau und gesunde Ernährung (association for organic farming and healthy food) is a non-profit organisation, founded in 1979 by considerate consumers in Bavaria. Today, it conducts certification, consultation and political representation for nearly 2,000 organic farmers, growers, processors, retailers and traders.

Biokreis is made up of five strong regions covering the complete country, which facilitate the development and the reinstitution of regional supply chains. It is the only German farming association, that does not engage in partnerships with multinational retailers of the conventional global food industry.
Biokreis is characterized by a lean organization, focus on the farmer as the basic agricultural entity and strong ties to owner-operated organic retailers and wholefood markets with a strictly organic product range.
Important strategic developments are decided by the members themselves, according to the principle one member - one vote. Since consumers are also fully-fledged members, Biokreis identifies itself as a grassroot organic farming association and continues to stay true to its founding values of some 45 years ago.
