Master thesis : Anwendung und Evaluation eines Bewertungssystem-Prototyps zur Vergleichbarkeit technologischer Verarbeitungsverfahren von Bio-Lebensmittelverarbeitungsunternehmen anhand zweier Getreidevermahlungsverfahren eines Bio-Bäckereibetriebs
Author: Pia Uthe (FH Münster and in collaboration with AOL, Germany)

Because of the lack of requirements for the use of processing methods in EU organic legislation, organic food processing companies often lack the basis for selecting processing methods that are highly compliant with EU organic principles. The ProOrg-project has developed a prototype of an assessment framework that can be used to evaluate and compare processing methods with regard to their conformity with EU organic principles in order to support organic food processing companies in their decision-making. The objective of this work is to apply and evaluate this prototype in cooperation with the bakery X and finally to formulate recommendations for further development of the prototype.
