The European record-breaking data was unveiled at the inauguration of the QCertificazioni headquarters in Siena (part of the Bureau Veritas Italy Group).

In the European Union, 9.6% of the agricultural land is used for organic farming; this percentage rises to 18.7% in Italy. Tuscany, known as the Queen of Organic Farming, surpasses this with an impressive 35.8%, the highest among the five regions (Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany, Puglia, Calabria, and Sicily) that have significantly increased organic cultivation over the last decade, collectively representing 55% of organic crops in Italy.

Given the current high tension in the European agricultural sector, with efforts to safeguard the quality of local productions, the data revealed at the opening of the new QCertificazioni offices in Tuscany, now part of the Bureau Veritas group since 2019, holds dual significance.
