Only six percent of gingerbread sold in the Austrian supermarkets are organic, is the sobering result of a "Greenpeace market check" in the pre-Christmas time. Also vegan gingerbreads and those with Fairtrade Qualities are in the minority. A quarter of the main enabled comes from Austria - but consumers would not be heard due to weak marking.

The largest selection of fairly produced organic gingerbread can be obtained from Hofer.

Thus, the supermarket chain received the first place in the ranking and as well as six other markets - including Billa and Spar - the rating "Good". Significant reviews only received Penny Market with "satisfactory" and Lidl with "sufficient".

That would not know consumers, information such as "EU / non-EU countries" would disguise that, for example, only a very small part of honey has to come from the EU.
