Why Organic ?

Post 1950s modern agriculture contributed significantly, first by raising the productivity of land resources, and second by offering more variety, quantity and convenience to the consumers. But soon on both fronts it started to fail miserably. While the productivity could not be maintained at farm level without substantially increasing the cost of cultivation, for consumers, it delivered food

with many new forms and types of contaminants and adulterants, seriously affecting the health of the consumers. Scientific & medical communities across the world hold present day food responsible for many modern lifestyle diseases.

Organic has been an outcome of consumer concerns regarding the quality of food. Today the discerning consumer is demanding and willing to pay for food without contamination. Organic is essentially natural and is based on a philosophy that respects nature and its dynamism to meet all the requirements of present and future generations.



Today almost everyone is suffering from health problems related to stomach, indigestion, loss of energy, overall and general tiredness. When you compare the health and appetite of our ancestors and our previous generations, the difference is obvious. Almost all mothers complain that their children are not eating well enough. We feel heavy even if we’ve consumedsmall portions of food. Almost everyday new scientific evidence is being produced that link many dreaded diseases such a

diabetes, heart strokes, cancers, etc. to the food presently being produced and consumed. A large number of young professionals today gain weight even if they are eating very little. Surely the food we eat must have something to do with these issues.Organic food is a sincere attempt to improve the quality of life through the food we eat. While it is contamination-freein terms of toxic chemicals, it is also handled in a manner that makes it absolutely adulteration-free. The certification process across the value chain requires that at each stage of the value chain, i.e., cultivation, procurement, storage, processing etc is verified through third party independent inspection cum certification agency. In the end, it is also required to be sold in a packed & sealed form showing the logos of the certification marks. Possibly no other food, in terms of its quality, is as closely monitored as organic food. This is also the reason why today certified organic food has the highest credibility in the eyes of even the most quality conscious consumer.

Organic food is free from the potent cocktail of fertilizers, pesticides, insecticides and other chemicals that go into growing conventional produce. Even the chemical methods of preservation are not allowed to be used during storage, thus making organic food safer and also healthier.



Organic philosophy is inherently beneficial to the Earth, environment & thus our future. Organic production &

processing is based on a number of principles and ideas generally defined as Standards. They cover organic production at farm, processing, storage, labelling, and marketing activities, i.e., the complete value chain from farming to food. Organic agriculture also aims to minimize the use of external inputs to reduce the cost of cultivation, thus benefiting both the producer as well as the consumers.

Organic agriculture covers all kinds of food & fibre production systems and can be defined as essentially a chemical-free farming system to produce uncontaminated farm produce of high nutritional quality in sufficient quantities. It also allows agriculture producers to meet their needs by obtaining adequate returns, satisfaction from their work and a safe working environment. It aims to further create an ecologically, socially and economically sustainable system of food and fibre production.
