Where we can be found

OUR LABELS

You can find our labels on all products that consist of or include Donau Soja or Europe Soya, which means that the used soya meets our standards.

These define the region of origin of the soya (DS: Danube region, ES: Europe) and include standards for plant protection, non-GM production, traceability, sustainability (land use change, social standards) and the inspection system.

CERTIFIED PRODUCTS

Certified products are available in Austria, Germany, Serbia and Switzerland. You can recognise many of them by the Donau Soja and Europe Soya labels:

The supermarket chains REWE (Billa, Merkur, Penny), Spar, and Hofer – all three being members of Donau Soja Association – sell more than 350 million eggs per year. Since November 2013, these eggs come from hens which have been fed exclusively on European soya. Hence, more than 3,400 Austrian supermarkets are offering Donau Soja certified eggs and are thereby contributing to the promotion of the European agriculture and reduction of CO2 emissions.

In addition, numerous direct marketers in Austria offer certified Donau Soja eggs.

EGG PRODUCTION IN AUSTRIA

The first Serbian Donau Soja labelled eggs are available since June 2016 in more than 300 supermarkets of the biggest retail chain Mercator S under the brand PL Kplus.
