IMO was founded in Switzerland in 1989 by Dr. Rainer Bächi and Elisabeth Rüegg. In only 15 years IMO has grown from a 2-people office to an international group of companies. Read more about our founder…
From the very beginning IMO has worked internationally. Our philosophy has always been to collaborate with the people living in the countries where IMO is operating or has had opportunities to operate. This approach has allowed us to open new offices through joint ventures with local individuals or organizations.

Today IMO is a member of the international ECOCERT group based in France. ECOCERT and IMO share core values on organic agriculture, environmental protection and sustainability. This merger strengthens our international presence and offers new opportunities of development for our clients: a wider range of environmental services and certifications with recognized and demanding standards.

Throughout the years, IMO has developed many innovative products for producers and consumers worldwide. Read more about our innovations…
