There is a quality label with organic gold school canteens if the percentage of ingredients from agriculture and farms at sea and in the stable come from organic farms in at least 50% of cases; silver mark if the bio quota is at least 30%. This is what the decree, published in the Official Gazette, of the Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies which defines the criteria and requirements of organic school canteens.

The classification criteria, specifies the Ministry of Agricultural Policies, have been identified and agreed with the Ministry of Education, Regions and Municipalities.
