Find out more about Bio Garantie as a company and as an employer.

From BIKO to Bio Garantie GmbH:  As early as 2001, the Association Kontrollservice BIKO Tirol (BIKO), based in Innsbruck, began operating as an organic control body in South Tyrol. Over the years, the inspections have mainly been carried out via Austria. Due to the increasing demands on the control market, BIKO was integrated into the Austria Bio Garantie Group, Austria's largest organic control body, in 2020 and the branch in South Tyrol was converted into a GmbH. At the beginning of 2021, the company name was changed from Kontrollservice BIKO Tirol GmbH to Bio Garantie GmbH in order to make the connection transparent. The new structure makes it possible to continue to be there for our customers as an accredited certification body with a very good price-performance ratio, well-trained employees and inspectors and the usual service.
