On the way to PlanetProof
We promote contributing to the protection of products, plants and people, now and in the future. To highlight our efforts, we are using hallmarks and information about them. This article tells you more about the On the way to PlanetProof hallmark.
The independent hallmark On the way to PlanetProof proves (‘Proof’) that you are buying a product that is more sustainably produced and thus better for nature, the environment, climate and animals. With On the way to PlanetProof, farmers and horticulturalists are striving to align their way of working in balance with the planet’s carrying capacity. That is a process of taking more steps to burden our planet less (‘On the way to…’).
You may encounter the hallmark on dairy products, vegetables and fruit, eggs, flowers, plants, trees and bulbs. It proves (‘Proof’) that you are buying a product that is more sustainably produced and thus better for nature, the environment, climate and animals.

The information organisation Milieu Centraal has judged PlanetProof as a ‘top hallmark’ for food.
