Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice – Migros Bio

It is the season for all things pumpkin related ! I am obsessed with this vegetable as it is so versatile. Eat it sweet, eat it savoury, hot or cold, the pumpkin really is the perfect seasonal “Migros Bio” product.

Migros Bio

In the 1960s, Migros started ‘Migros Bio’ and since 1995, the organic eco-label has developed into the brand that we now know. In the past, fruits and vegetables were our organic assortment. However, other products were soon added, such as dairy products, eggs, bread, and baked goods, but also meat and fish.

Today, Migros offers 5000 products under the “Migros Bio” label, from baby food to chocolate and teas.

Migros Bio respects the following 7 rules:

  1. Respect for nature and the environment
  2. Production in accordance with natural cycles
  3. Stimulation of natural soil fertility
  4. Preventive protection of plants instead of using synthetic products
  5. Feeding adapted to the species in question and breeding as respectful as possible of animal welfare, if possible with fodder grown on site
  6. No addition of artificial flavors, colors or flavor enhancers
  7. Prohibition of the use of genetic engineering and air transport
